Hi. I have been a member of this site for a while now, as I joined when I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer last May. However, I joined the MS support today, as my Mother was diagnosed at 58 (in 1999) and at that time they stated she'd probably had it for 25 years. Anyhow, she has been complaining about a band about 12" in width of "pain" or a "squeezing" sensation, going around her body just under the breast area. Her Neurologist has told us that it is probably due to the MS. She's had upper and lower GI tests done to no avail. We have an appointment with the Neuro again on Monday, but I decided to see if anyone here has experienced anything like this and knew what it was. I know the people in the OVCA group are great and thought this might be an honest place to get an answer or idea. The pain is getting worse. Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks so much.
