Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

Your symptoms seem to be related to multiple sclerosis.
The MS hug is a collection of symptoms caused by spasms in the intercostal muscles. These muscles are located between your ribs.
They hold your ribs in place and help you move with flexibility and ease.
So,I suggest using a muscle relaxant such as Baclofen for muscle relaxant.
I also recommend using magnesium supplement.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
