Thursday night sleeping, when laying flat on either side,

Customer Question

Thursday night sleeping, when laying flat on either side, front or back breathing was uncomfortable exhaling the very last part of the breath. Breathing did not hurt when sitting, so I slept on the couch sitting up. Friday night started as the same thing then part way through the night I could sleep on my right side and my back toward mourning. Still discomfort exhaling when on my left side. The pain or discomfort is left side under my boob. Any ideas what it might be?
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: Just started Thursday night. Only hurts when laying down flat.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Not that I know of.
