Head hugs?

Hey all. Curious if anyone out there gets ms hugs in their head? Throughout my most recent flare I’m having this pressing sensation to the front and back of my head that makes my eyes feel like they are popping out of my head. I wouldn’t describe this sensation as pain. Ive previously had migraines and headaches and the only similarity to those is the vertigo I’m experiencing. If anyone has any insight or tips and tricks for this they would be greatly appreciated.

No sorry I get the MS hugs around your back and stomach

@kristy_gramiak , given your occupation, I won’t insult you by offering my amateur medical suggestions.

It just can’t be anything to do with a MS Hug as these are caused by muscles spasms.

I’d let your neurological team know of this symptom and see what they suggest.

I do experience issues similar to how you describe.

At times my head feels like it is ready to explode, pressure build up is immense, eyes become so heavy it\’s impossible to keep them open.

I wouldn’t call this an MS Hug though but, I do understand what you’re saying.
