Kaylin had chest pain in the morning depending on what type of bed she sleeps on what could that be? It's been going on for awhile now.

Kaylin had chest pain in the morning depending on what type of bed she sleeps on what could that be? It's been going on for awhile now.

Probably muscles: When I hear that the chest pain depends on the type of bed she uses, it makes me think that the issue is related to soft tissues such as muscles, tendons or ligaments. Because the different beds may be causing strain on these soft tissues while she sleeps, she would experience pain when these tissues are used in the morning. It would be wise to check with your physician to consider other causes. ...Read more
