Chest pain when I wake up.

Lately I've been having this chest pain when I wake up. it's so severe that I just wanna lay there til it subsides. But soon as I get out of bed it starts to get better, and I have no problem throughout the day.

Any thoughts?

Re: Chest pain when I wake up.

mariposa9, Do you know what your blood pressure reads right after you get up? What types of blood pressure readings do you get during the day?

Are you on any medications or supplements?

What is your age?

Along with the chest pain, do you have any shortness of breath? Any heavy sweating? Swelling in the legs, ankles or feet? Do you ever feel your heart racing, or pounding, or skipping beats?

Do you have any known health problems? What are your Cholesterol, Triglycerides and Blood Sugar levels?

Lastly, when was your last EKG or Complete Blood Workup?

Re: Chest pain when I wake up.

I'm 53 years old, I'm currently on hydrochlorathiazide for BP. I'm also on aspirin therapy. Had A-fib 5 years ago. Converted without any complications. I work out at least 5 times a week, including an hour on the stair master. I would say I'm in the best shape I've been in in years, since i was in my twenties. Other than these recent episodes, i feel great.

Re: Chest pain when I wake up.

I also have no other symptoms whatsoever, don't smoke, don't use drugs, occasional drinker. I take multivitamins and fish oil. Physically, I don't think i could feel much better other than this.

Could it be acid, gerd, indigestion related? HCTZ has possible digestion side effects, and aspirin can cause heartburn. Perhaps the combination of the two?

One would think that the lack of any other symptoms, and the lack of any kind of health or heart problem during the day, or during demanding exercise, could greatly decrease the possibility of significant heart disease, IMHO.

Re: Chest pain when I wake up.

I too have the same problem. Plus when I woke up, I forgot all things about yesterday for a while. I need to seat for at-least 5-10 mins to remember everything about my existence. I got frustration when this happens every morning.Can any one help me?
