Often Wakes Up In The Middle Of The Night When The Chest Feels Tight?
At night, I want to ask what causes me to often wake up in the middle of the night with my chest feeling tight or depressed, etc. I deal with it by drinking warm water to ache my nails, after that it’s a bit relieved just accompanied by belching, It’s often I feel when after drinking coffee or subject to excessive wind, Is it classified as the heart or an ulcer like that ??
