There are times that I am plagued with the "MS hug" all day - the pain on one or both sides of my ribs, also known as the "girdle-band sensation." Then there are days that blissfully pass without one twinge in that area.
However, I am noticing that for me, sitting in certain chairs means that I am more likely to feel "the hug." Also, very unfortunately, at times my daughters sitting on my lap or my husband resting his head on my thigh as he lays on the couch can really bring it on.
