Toohey - Seraph is right about different positions due not change the pain if you have heart conditions. If it was your heart or angina it would be differnt it hurt a lot and movement, coughing or anything else does not change the pain.
Could be a lot of things. Like Seaph said go to the Dr.'s and get checked, but I think your heart is fine. Maybe muscle pain or even acid reflux ( yes it can cause that some times). Take care.
