Tight Torso

Hey, my torso has been feeling very odd (as if I’ve got a very tight elastic band around it) for the past 6 weeks or so. I’m waiting to hopefully get back onto interferon soon but does anyone know of any natural, non-prescribed way of helping to get rid of this feeling or at least lessen it?

I think that is what people describe as the MS hug. I have never had it, but I have heard it is unpleasant.
Maybe google is to see if anyone has any ideas on how to relieve it.

I get this sometimes. definitely not comfortable. Makes me feel almost like I cant breath properly. I know that sometimes a bit of torso stretches can help…but really I usual am only able to stick through it until it goes away.

hi koo, i’ve read on here that some people use baclofen, i get ms hug a lot, sometimes very extreme, like you can’t breathe and very painful. i try to do yoga stretches which stretch backwards. it can be very painful but it makes me feel like i’m doing something about seizing up.
take care
