It was only recently that I learned that the tightness and squeezing feeling we can get is called an MS Hug. What an adorable name! Adorable and slightly ironic. :) Anyway, I have had these before and, while very uncomfortable, there was no pain. It just felt like my bra was on really really really tight, even if I wasn't wearing one.
Lately, however, I have been experiencing a similar feeling, but on the inside of my body instead of on the outside. It feels like all the organs in my chest and torso are being squeezed. And when I breathe, it feels like a sumo wrestler is on my chest...pressure and pain. The pain is not severe, but it is enough to double me over.
It usually goes away within a few hours, or at least by the end of the day. Before when I had the "MS Hug", it lasted for almost a month. I'm mystified.
Has anyone else ever experienced this? Is this an MS Hug or is this something completely different?
