Pain in the left side of chest. Neck and shoulder. Feel it when I sleep on the left side. Smoke and over weight?

Maybe nothing but...: Shelley,

The fact that it is positional (and not worse with exertion) would indicate more of a muscular condition. That being said, you have two major risk factors for cardiac disease (you smoke and are overweight). If you have high blood pressure, diabetes, or a family history, that would add to your risk. You should have an EKG and stress test done by your doctor to be sure. Hope this helps! ...Read more
