Hi all just thought I’d share my scary experience,
I was in the bath, relaxing when gradually my chest started to tighten and sharp pains on both sides of my ribs under the arms, the centre front of the chest and behind the shoulder blades. This led to not being able to catch my breath and the pain intensifying, I ended up naked on the cool kitchen floor, in various chest and back stretching positions, sweating with waves of pain growing in intensity for an hour until I panicked and called 111.
They have said it doesn’t sound cardio vascular and I am now waiting for the out of hours doctor to call me back. Its not as intense now but still coming in waves.
Does what I describe sound like the MS hug? Never experienced anything like it, I can only describe it as labour pains in the chest.
I have only just finished a course of steroids for a relapse on Thursday just gone. Is it possible to already be relapsing again so soon?
