How are you today?
I thought I'd open this discussion to talk about an MS symptom that many people have a hard time describing: the MS hug. MS hugs vary from patient to patient, but it generally describes an uncomfortable feeling of tightness or pressure around the chest and torso.
To learn more about the causes, symptoms and treatments for MS hugs, feel free to take a look at our latest article here: MS Hugs: What are they and how to live with them?
Have you experienced an MS hug? What did it feel like to you? How do you manage them?

@Courtney_J I just got a chance to read the article, thank you for sharing! I hadn't heard of the term before, but I've definitely experienced the sensation. The "boots" feeling too. Next time I have a "hug" I'll give the tight clothing a try.
Has anyone else had this? Did any of the tips in the article help?
