Pain in right chest, specially when I deep breath. Happened after I woke up. It's been 2 days. Suspecting a muscle pull during sleep. Cld it b serious
Pain on deep breath: The most common cause of acute pain on taking a deep breath in is "pleurisy", also known as 'the devil's grip'. This is due to a cold virus that gets into the lining of the lung, making it raw, and when you take a deep breath, it rubs against the ribs and hurts. This will go away by itself in a few more days. Other common causes are muscle sprains. A rare cause could be blood clot or cancer. ...Read more

If I woke-up this morning with leg pain, should I be concerned? It feels as if I may have pulled a muscle, but could I actually do that in my sleep?
You haven't said anything about your age, gender, medical history, or overall state of health, so it's a little tough for me to narrow things down, but there are some things that would explain this.
Given the snowfall in seattle over the past few days, have you maybe been doing some shoveling of snow or maybe some skiing or other vigorous physical activity? Could you have slipped while walking on the ice? Overuse of muscles or trauma might cause pain that wakes you up. A muscle cramp might also cause this type of localized pain.
If you have a history of vascular disease, or are at risk for it (older age group, high cholesterol, smoker or diabetic) then this could represent a blocked blood vessel. Do you have ongoing pain? Numbness? Are your symptoms increased with exercise? If so, then you should be evaluated for compromised blood flow. ...Read more

I am feeling repeated muscles tighten, spasm and relax when sleeping. Felt most in sides, arms and legs. No hx of epilep, interaction between meds?
Hypnagogic jerk: A sudden muscle twitch while falling asleep is very common, and is called a hypnagogic jerk. There is a theory that this is a leftover reflex; a primate falling asleep whose muscles relax too much might fall out of a tree, and so we wake up to grab a limb.
