I sleep on my side and usually rest my head on my left arm. Wake up sore with chest and shoulder aches. How do I change this bad habit? (heart is ok)

In brief: Sleep posture

You are experiencing a problem relating to your sleep position.
I know it is often difficult to learn to sleep in a new position, but i would try sleeping on your other side or on your back. If this does not help pin your left sleeve to your pajama bottom, to keep your arm down. Use pillows to rest your head in the position your want.
