Hi all, diagnosed a few weeks ago and trying to get to grips with some sympoms.
I’ve been having weakness in my left arm and some involuntary finger movements, but I’m also getting pain and tightness throughout my arm and hand. I have this strange urge/compulsion to clench my arm tightly to my body, if that makes any sense, and a tightness in the left side of my chest. I’ve read about the MS hug and it doesn’t match that fully - its not like a band around my chest, more left-sided. I’ve had a few twitches/spasms (?) in the arm too and this odd feeling that is about to do something dramatic, though it doesn’t.
It is pretty uncomfortable and distracting and I was just wondering if anyone else recognised this symptom. It is one of those ‘am I making this up?’ sensations.
