Ms hug

I have just had a relapse which I was given steroids for. They helped with the pain in my legs but now I’m having the ms hug. What do you take for pain relief when you have the hug? Normally when I get it its just uncomfortable but this time Im in alot of pain. I get it round my stomach and chest.

Hi Jennie

Poor you, the MS hug can be awful.

It felt to me that I was being kicked in the chest from the inside!

it took my breath away.

my GP gave me diazepam for it.

hope it goes away soon.
