I was told that sleeping on your left side was the BEST side for heart and GI issues.
Lately I've noticed I am sleeping nearly exclusively on my right side. When I notice that, I roll over to the left side, and nearly immediately experience chest pain in the vicinity of what I perceive to be my heart.
Now granted, my heart appears to be located beneath my left breast. It COULD BE the left breast is actually the thing in pain.
Anyway, my question is this - all you folks out there with your various heart ailments, have you experienced this? Do you think I should make a point of seeing a specialist about it? I did complain a year ago to my PCP about chest pain, and she hooked me up to an EKG, and they found nothing.
