I think I suffer from the Ms hug(looking on line at web sites who sort of explain how I feel-they called it Ms hug dont know if it is) it gives me a tighten around my lungs and catches my breath. My Mums says it is Ashthma but I dont agree. It feels like all the muscles are really tight around my chest and it is really uncomfortable.
Any tips

Most people take something for spasticity when they experience the MS hug.  It is caused from the chest wall and rib muscles spasming.  Are you taking anything for spasticity?  Welcome to healingwell by the way, we are glad you are here.

I have days that my chest and ribs are so sore that I can barely breath. I can't even get dressed completely and being a woman, those are the days that I stay in my pj's and don't leave the house. Is that what your talking about?
