Hi @paige_wheeler .The famous ms hug feels different for everyone but generally having all the breath squeezed out of your body would be a good analogy. Shallow breathing is usually a good way to deal with it even though your instincts are to go for a big breath🥊 Don’t panic, you’re not going to die even though it feels like you are at the time. It’s the one time you don’t want t be told to relax and chill out but it is honestly the best way of dealing with it, as it is probably our muscles going into spasm though the jury is still out on this. Hope you feel better tomorrow🤙😍

@paige_wheeler, funny you should mention this – I’m also ppms and have at times at night had discomfort in my diaphragm area which I put down to indigestion, now I’m wondering if I’m getting a ‘hug’too. I don’t get it every night, just every now and then. xx

I wasn’t diagnosed with MS or even wondering about it when I had problems with MS hugs. It was one summer when I was working out in the heat a lot. Every night I went to bed with numb hands and a tightness and pain in my chest. I went to see my GP about it and he said my heart was fine. So I went to bed that summer wondering if I would wake up in the morning. Potter

Thanks for all your responses. I go to my doc next week and the MS hug gives us something to talk about. I hate this disease but it could be worst.
