Why do I get intense pain on the left side of my chest while lying down at night?
Hello, I am a 16-year-old male, and I have recently been spending a lot of time in bed. . Every time I lay down at night, If I change my position even a little bit, I get pretty intense pain on the left side of my chest. The pain feels skeletal on the chest. I really don't know what to do. It is getting worse by the day, and I am really concerned. What this could be and what should I do?
@hridaya Hello, my recommendation for you would be to see a doctor. Chest pain that occurs while lying down at night might be caused by conditions like acid reflux. The lying down position can cause flare-ups of pain. The pain could also be due to a cardiac or lung condition, obesity, or an injury, all of which should be discussed with a doctor. Please take healthcare help as it could be a lung problem or inflammation of the lining around a person's heart. Thanks!
