sharp chest pain when sleeping on left side?

1 doctor answer

Costrochondritis: Generally chest pain when sleeping on the side is musculoskeletal in origin and does not signify heart disease. The only worrisome problem could be reflux, which may be causing pain in your espohagus when you lie on your side.
