New pain?

Apr 04, 2016 11:50 PM

I've had this pain that starts right under my breasts and wraps around my waist. It feels like in wearing a corset and being squished into it. Some days it's not so bad but other days it is. Anyone experience this?

I have nerve pain all over my body from Lyme disease and CRPS but there are many illnesses that feel this way like MS or fibro. If you haven't heard of the "MS hug" you basically described it perfectly. I hope you find out what is going on!

BeausMomma, does it feel tender or more painful to presses in between the ribs, or at the breastbone? I have Costochondritis and it does that. I hope it improves soon. Hugs & prayers! 🙂💕🙏🌼

It's hard to describe. It's not my breast bone. The pain starts right under my breasts and wraps around me like someone is hugging me entirely too tight. Around my ribs, down my sides, to about my naval. Some days it takes my breath away. I'll have to look into the MS hug. I've never heard of it.

I have costo as well. Mine is irritation at the sternum but then occasional (lol daily) cramping or stabbing between some ribs. I find if I gently rub or massage the sore area, or even just press it until the pain fades it stays gone for a while. It sure makes it hard to sing when suddenly your ribs spasm like that!
