MS hug

Hi there,
Can anyone tell me what the ms hug feels like? I’ve been having pain across my chest for a few days, especially when I bend down or when I’m reaching to get something.
Not sure if it’s the ms hug or ice just pulled a muscle through work!
Thank you ☺️

@asht1994 , you’re much too young to be dealing with all this.

Anyway, here is a link to the description of the mis-named symptom, the MS Hug. Or Banding, as it is also called :-

Hello & welcome.
Now & again I receive the MS hug (as whoever branded this name,) but I’ve never experienced pain so far as I’m aware & I stand corrected if otherwise, there is no pain. MS hug around my stomach which interferes with food intake. A couple of times it shifted to the ribs extremely tight interfering, you feel with breathing, however in not panicking doing some slow breathing exercises I learned to cope.
I hope this elevates soon for you as it is rather uncomfortable.
Many hugs.
