... the MS hug. Does anyone have any relief for this pain?
I can't tell you how many times I went to the ER and a cardiologist for chest pains. I even had my gallbladder removed before my MS diagnosis. Amazing what you'll do to try to get rid of that pain. Sometimes heat or yoga has helped. But I hate to admit that I have had to resort to medical marijuana to relieve the pain at times. I find that with the medical marijuana, I can control the dose and don't have to contend with the high that comes with narcotic pain meds. Pain medications only partially work on my MS pain and don't seem to work on the MS hug at all. I'm not a big fan of pain meds anyway due to the addictive nature. I'm sorry you have to experience this hug syndrome and wish I could offer more alternatives. I'm going to watch the posted answers closely to see what advice I can get from others, also.
Sk8r; are you taking any medications now that could be causing this, As you know MS show up in many different ways but also sometimes some of the special medications for MS have these type side effects.Please if you are taking other medications check with your Pharmacist, or doctor that have them all on record. feel free to Start another question and list any medications that you are taking and we or I can look and see if we can find anything that could cause chest pain. Or if you are not taking anything call your doctor and say you need help you can not put up with this MS-HUG that the Cardiologist as said you have and need some relief. all my best wishes. Not all of the meds they can use have to be narcotic so please don't worry taken correctly, or ask the doctor you would prefer to try something for the MS that is not a narcotic. All my best to you stay strong.
