MS Hug

MS Hug

MS hug gave me the uncomfortable sensation of tightness or compression around the torso or chest. Other times it was like a sharp pain in my heart area that made me think I was having a heart attack. When I felt MS Hug the first time I was having the last relapse before my diagnosis. By that time it was like I was trying to stand before a giant wave of turbulence. On the inside I felt like I was suffocating. Like It was taking my breath away, compressing my muscles, squeezing me tight, crushing my ribs. Sometimes I wanted to scream but there was no room enough for this. On the outside I looked perfectly fine. It's a misleading name, but I can say that It is an "unforgettable" hug.
