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. ...Read more

Important symptoms: The symptoms you describe could be a pneumothorax. That is probably the worst thing it could be. It is worth it to get checked out. You should see a doctor about these symptoms soon, in the next day or so max. If your out of breath gets worse and worse, you should be seen right away. ...Read more

I have chest pain all day everyday because I have g.e.r.d but why does my chest hurt worse at night?

Gravity: If chest pain is primarily due to GERD, then it is common to have worse pain at night. The reason is gravity. More stomach acid can leak out of your stomach into your esophagus causing burning. Also, the valve between your esophagus & stomach is less competent (more leaky) due to change in pressure gradient on either side due to lying down position & gravity. Recommend GERD medicine before bed. ...Read more
