Can you tell me about having chest pain/discomfort when breathing, leaning forward/backward, and laying after slight trauma?

ChstPain aftertrauma: More info is needed. If trauma is primarily to the chest wall, the pain may well be musculoskeletal. In that case simple analgesics (Tylenol) and anti-inflammatories (Ibuprofen) would be helpful. An evaluation by your doctor would be to rule out more serious causes.
