Every now an then I tend to wake up in the morning with really bad chest pains right in the center of my chest (upper sternum barely to the left) that is extremely painful when I first wake up and move around. Once I finally get to a comfortable position the pain goes away but comes back again once I am up and moving. To me it seems more like a bone/muscle issue because it only hurts when I either am moving a certain way or laying/sitting in a certain position. I am planning on going to the doctor but thought I would hear any thoughts on here first. The pain gradually starts to improve a few hours after I am up. Just to give a little more information, I am not having any pain in any other areas and not having trouble breathing.View Thread
