I’m experiencing new symptoms and with being diagnosed for 3 years of course I have came across people talking about the MS hug.
I struggle with with back pain normally with ms attacking my core muscle but last night I tossed and turned all night with back then I felt a weird sensation up on side and just thought I’d pulled a muscle.
However as the day as progressed the pain isn’t in my lower back as it normally is but higher starting from my shoulders downwards, round my ribs and stops just under where my bra strap would end.
The pain is sharp and radiating across the way and it feels like I’m being squeezed and released over and over again in quick successions with shooting pains thrown in making breathing harder and uncomfortable.
Is this what people mean by the ms hug?
Also with it being a new symptom is it the start of a new relapse (I have weird new tingling sensations in my fingers on my left hand also) or it is just MS the gift that keeps on giving?
thanks for reading.
