Causes Shortness Of Breath When Sleeping On Your Side?
Hello. I want to ask, why yes when I sleep sideways to the left or right I feel shortness of breath. To overcome it, I slept on my back to be more comfortable. I also often experience pain in the middle of my spine which makes me feel pain and sometimes when I straighten up, the bone sounds. Do these two things affect each other and is there any indication of a particular disease, thank you.

Shortness of breath in general can be caused by disorders of several organs of the body. I will try to explain in advance the causes of shortness of breath, including:
lung, shortness of breath caused by the lungs are usually caused by infections, inflammation and allergies in the lungs. If the shortness caused by infection is usually shortness accompanied by fever and cough. heart, shortness caused by the heart is usually focused on the left chest, in addition to tightness accompanied by chest pain such as crushed on the left chest and pain in the left neck and left arm. stomach, tightness caused by the stomach is usually influenced by increased stomach acid. Which is characterized by chest tightness in the middle of the chest, sometimes pain in the solar plexus and pain in the back of the back. Based on the complaints you mentioned, it can lead to stomach tightness which increases stomach acid which can be affected by stress, irregular eating patterns and also eating foods that irritate the stomach. However, it is necessary to know if you want to determine a diagnosis, there must be a further interview, physical examination and support. Therefore, my advice is that you consult a doctor of internal medicine in order to be able to do more appropriate examinations and treatments.
