Hello. I’ve been experiencing tight pain around my chest to my Back. I always thoiught it had something to do with quitting smoking because it always corresponded to that. I haven’t smoked in months and it’s been happening the last few days. Last for hours goes away then comes back. Not sure if this is what’s called the ms hug or not
“Ms hug”: Hello. I’ve been experiencing... - My MSAA Community
Smartcloud1981 I don't know about the MS hug.😕 I was asking someone about yesterday.😊 and trying to find info. She said tell Neuro. 😐
I say I will wait.😊 I'm stubborn, and have a PCP appt on tue.😄
Mine tightens like a bear hug? I feel like I have to concentrate on my breathing. I do not like it.😒 Only happened twice tho.
Smartcloud1981, it's Fancy1959. Remember each and every person's Ms follows a slightly different path full of slightly different symptoms. What you have described sounds like the MS hug but make sure you keep track or keep a log of the severity of the pain, how often it hits, and how long it lasts and take it to your next neurologist appointment. If it gets too severe call the neurologist and try to get in quickly. We are not doctors on this site so we can only give you suggestions of what has work for us. Please follow up with your doctor and let us know your outcome.

I don't know your age or health history, but it's probably a really good idea to have it checked out. Though it sounds like MS hug, it's always smart to rule out any heart/lung issue, since those can be so vague, too.
I hope you feel better quickly. Congratulations on quitting smoking! Hurrah for you!
