MS hug or something else?

Hi all, I am currently experiencing mild chest pains, with a burning, breathless sensation in my lungs (kind of how I imagine asthma would feel). My heart also does some weird uncomfortable stuff when I lie down My GP has ordered bloods etc but thinks it may be MS hug. I do get MS hug, but I’ve only experienced it as tightness across my back. Can MS hug feel like a chest infection/something else? Cheers! Jo

When I experienced the MS hug it felt like I couldn’t expand my chest. Like I wanted to breathe in but found it hard. I think everyone’s experience can be different. I’m sure your GP will give you the right care. All the best. Hope you feel better soon.


Good that you went to the doctor. You may also try a heartburn med
