I wonder if any of you lovely people would be able to give me an idea of the different ways in which the “MS hug” manifests itself, please?
I am not dx, but have had pain in my ribs for a week -10 days now, and it is in a band right around my torso, just under my bra line. This whole area is also very tender to touch, and also feels tingly and itchy on and off. I have also felt on and off as if it is very tight around this band, and feel as if I need to take a really deep breath to be able to fill my lungs with air properly. The back muscles around this band also seem to go into spasm if I stand in one position for too long, or lift my arms up above a certain height for too long (eg: to chop veg at the kitchen counter).
I have also had random pains in my ribs below this band, and in the ribs in my chest, where I also have some areas that are very painful to touch.
These pains can be bad enough to wake me up at night.
Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
