    Is it isolated to one leg? Same spot everytime?

      Hi salo558,

      Sorry I didn't see this sooner. This is :just one more symptom we can experience with MS. I get it, too, so can symphathize with you. It can be acute or chronic (mine has become chronic).

      Burning, aching or “girdling” around the body (sometimes referred to as the "MS Hug")*are all neurologic in origin. The technical name for them is dysesthesias. These painful sensations typically affect the legs and feet, but may also affect the arms and trunk (such as the feeling of constriction around the abdomen or chest area known as the "MS Hug"). They can be very uncomfortable -- even quite painful -- but are not dangerous or necessarily disabling unless they are severe enough to interfere with a person's activities. Dysesthesias are often treated with the anticonvulsant medication gabapentin (Neurontin®). Dysesthesias may also be treated with an antidepressant such as amitriptyline (Elavil®), which modifies how the central nervous system reacts to pain. Other treatments include wearing a pressure stocking or glove, which can convert the sensation of pain to one of pressure; warm compresses to the skin, which may convert the sensation of pain to one of warmth; and over-the-counter acetaminophen (Tylenol® and others) which may be taken daily, under a physician’s supervision. http://www.nationalmssociety.org/Sym...-Symptoms/Pain

      Other medications can be presribed for this symptom. such as Lyrica or Doxepin as well. I also use cold therapy (ice packs). I hope you find relief, soon.

      Best of luck.

        So the hug goes down to your thigh @kimba22?

        I have never experienced that.

          I can see the way that this was worded in the first sentence might be confusing, but "burning, aching or “girdling” around the body" are 3 separate symptoms. (Later more specific in mentioning the feeling of constriction around the abdomen or chest area is known as the "MS Hug")

              IMO, the pain you are experiencing is not related to the infamous hug. It sounds to me like something different like perhaps spacisity or a phantom pain as I call it. I get them all the time, stick around for a few days then the go away but come back in the same spot from time to time.

                Hi salo558

                I have experienced burning sensations on my thigh (and on my foot).

                Fortunately, mine were always tolerable, never lasted very long, and I never needed to be hospitalized over the sensations.

                Hopefully your sensations pass soon! Wishing you the best.

                  Try wrapping your thigh with an ace bandage- not too tight, just enough to create a different and non-burning sensation.
