?inner ear: This could be a sign of left inner ear problem such as otolithic dysfnctn, meniere's, endolymphatic fistula, etc, and best to evaluate using a videonystagmogram and other otolaryngological studies.

Inner ear: Could consider local inner ear problem, such as "otolithic dysfnctn", where the receptors are irritable and shift when on left, but could also wonder if posture affects the vertebral artery in the neck, with some minimal compression.

A few thots: Maybe a local inner ear issue on the left, or perhaps, arterial compression in neck due to position, or even intracranial issues such as colloid cyst presentation.

When i sleep on my left side i find i get really bad gas on my right side. When i turn, i can pass it. Why?
Easy answer!: Think of a glass of soda--fizz rises to the top, right? This happens with air in your gut. As you see from colon anatomy, there is a left (descending) & right (ascending) part of the colon. Turning onto your left side allows right colon to fill with air (the "bad gas" you're experiencing); turning onto your right side moves gas to left colon which permits easy passage of it thru the rectum nearby. ...Read more

Needs evaluation: Most of us learn that left-sided chest pain might mean a heart attack, but it is usually with exertion--not lying on your left side. Inflammation of the heart surface or pericarditis can be a cause of positional chest pain as can mitral valve prolapse. You should see your doctor promptly for an evaluation. Good wishes:) ...Read more
Unknown: I don't think there is one right answer to this as it might be different for different people. Most likely causes are repetitive jostling of the internal organs which pull on various ligamentous points of attachment such as are found in the right and left upper quadrants or for females in the pelvic area. ...Read more
Need neck and hip: support. If either isn't present, you're putting too much pressure on your rib cage that shouldn't otherwise be there and your entire chest. When on your side your neck should remain in complete neutral position w/ your spine and lower back. So no torsional vector forces are placed on your body while you sleep. Get proper cervical support pillow for your neck.May need pillow top mattress pad too. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
