  • Woke Up This Morning With Pain In Ribs & Lungs

    When I first woke up this morning I felt sharp pain where my ribs and lungs are. To pinpoint the pain let me explain, in between my boobs but a bit lower in between my ribs. The pain starts there and moves to my ribs. The pain has stopped now, it only hurt about five minutes at most. I slept on my stomach when I went to sleep. It was deep sharp pain. Should I be worried?

  • Welcome to WH.

    Which side of your body was the pain? If it was the side where your heart is, then I would go and get a test. Though I myself have had that and there is nothing wrong with me, I'd be concerned and have a checkup.

    • I get random aches and pains sometimes. If it happens a lot, or last for a long time then you should go see a doctor, like now. Sometimes the body just aches though and it could be because of the way you were sleeping or an activity the day before. Hope you're feeling better though.

      • Usually it's a lightly pulled or cramped muscle like sleeping with your neck at a weird angle. I've had it happen a lot across my ribs. Directly below and slightly in of your left breast is your heart. If you have pain there more than for a short time once I'd see a doctor. Also directly up the center of your chest can be a sign of acid reflux which often flares up while laying flat to sleep and goes away when you spend time standing up.
