Hi and thank you for asking us

Through the question and statement you gave on the above section, i completely understand your concern over this matter. For your information this occurence is actually quite normal. Basically when you lay down, you compress your stomach and chest cavity together, putting pressure on the heart and blood flow and increasing circulation. However if you experienced these symptoms with heart palpitations, I suggest you to seek medical attention quickly:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Fainting
  • Chest pain
  • Lightheaded

Don’t wait until you get the symptom. Take care of your heart starting NOW.

If you have any more enquiries, you can click on the link (DoctorOnCall) and speak to our doctors in private and get the consultation you need on the phone. Thank you.

Chest pain can be a symptom of heart disease. Get a cardiologist to weigh in on your symptoms today.
