Feeling Pain And Heaviness In Right Side Of Chest And Back While Sleeping.

I am 33 yrs old male, feeling pain in right side of my chest from last 1.5 months while sleeping only. I took action immd and Doctor advised me to have X-Ray which was normal. In starting he gave me some acidity relief pills (DSR) for 2 weeks but no improvement then followed by pain relief pills which gave me some comfort in night. But as soon as I gave up, I felt pain again however pain gets lower when I sit or walk for just 15 mins but it doesn't allow me to have continuous sleep for more than 4 hrs however there is no problem in day time. I was then advised to go for lipid profile which was quite ok except bad cholesterol was on edge 149 which am taking care. Now I am feeling additional pain in chest bones (don't know what it's called) and backside also in night time.Please suggest what it could be.. Thanks.

Answer

I've not heard of this kind of pain associated with sleep before. Is the pain waking you up when you are asleep, or do you notice it when lying down, before falling asleep?
