I am having pain in the middle of my chest started last night, went away this morning and then started up again this afternoon. The pain is a dull ache, but enough to be noticed. It gets worse when I lay down. Any ideas?

Many different things can cause chest pain. Since your pain worsens when you lay down, I'm thinking yours may be caused by a gastrointestinal problem, such as acid reflux/GERD. However, this is just a guess. Chest pain is not something you want to ignore. At the very least, I would recommend that you see your primary physician. Or if you have one of those walk-in medical clinics near you, it would be ideal to go there WHILE you're having the pain, so they can do an EKG right away.
Good luck.
