My Pain Feels Like Gas Pains That Get Worse Upon Laying Down Could It Be My Heart?

For about a week every night at bedtime, early or late, when I lay down, pain in my chest and back and neck really hurts. At first I thought it was gas pains, but when I sat up it eased, so last night when it happened I took as aspirin and within minutes the pain at eased almost completely, however this morning really don't feel good. Should I tell my Dr. if it is gas, I really would feel stupid.

Answer

Hi Ronajean,

Yes, but what if it wasn't simply gas? I recommend you contact your physician to discuss your symptoms and determine the cause.

Here are two links you make want to review/compare:
