Tightening pain

Postby doim86 » Mon Jan 25, 2016 10:20 pm

Hi all

I highly doubt anyone will know what I'm talking about but I'm going to give it a go anyway!

For some time now, I've had this strange going on and I'm wondering if it's to do with my fibro or if it's something else.

Just before I fall asleep at night, every night, I get a strange feeling at the top of my abdomen, just below my breasts.
It tightens on breathing out, and can be very uncomfortable.

The only thing I've found online that it resembles is the MS hug. But I've not got MS.

The doc has no idea what it could be. It happens in a hot bath too.

Any ideas??

I get a very painful spasm under the right side of my rib cage which I'm told is a fibro thing, any muscle can spasm and obviously we have collections of them all over our bodies. Maybe the stretching movement of lying down is causing that area to do this? Maybe your doc would recommend muscle relaxants, you can only ask!
