It is the upper part of me where my lungs are but I feel it all the way around my back. What It kind of feels like that tightness you get from indigestion I guess. But different. Almost like there isn't enough room in my ribcage to breath properly. It is uncomforatable but not intolerable. What do think this is?
Ive had the exact same sensations lately. Mainly when I swallow food (almost like an indigestion in the chest) as opposed from other swallowing sensations Ive had in the past where it almost feels like your'e swallowing a cue ball
Doctor xrayd lungs an told me I have early signs of emphysemia
Yep Ive given up my roll your owns habit of approx 10 a day ( for the last 30 odd years)
....but I still hang on to the fact it might be MS related
