Standing erect: When you lie or sit, your body doesn't have to fight gravity to get blood to your head. When you stand up, it does, and heart rate rises and leg blood vessels tighten to maintain blood flow to your brain. Breathing is less affected. If you have heart failure, breathing and heart rate may rise upon lying down since more blood returns to the heart than it can handle and it backs up into the lungs. ...Read more

What does it mean when you get a sharp a tabbing pain on your left side where your heart is? I physically have to stop breathing and I get breath prop

Pinched nerve: Sharp shooting pains in the rib cage may be due to pinching of the intercostal nerve. A deep breath often accentuates it. If there is tenderness on touching the rib cage I would recommend a spot xray of that rib area.
