Hello... hopefully you guys can help, it's sad the internet offers more than doctors in hospitals these days.

I am a 25 year old, white guy, I look like I'm in shape, I seem a bit thin, I used to be kind of buff, but never had good cardio training. I spent my youth staying home and playing videocrack for years. I found out that I had HBP around age 17. My avg then was 140/60. These days it's 150/90. Somedays it is lower.
I have always been anxious on and off because I want to complete something in life before I kick the bucket. Knowing I have HBP gives me stress sometimes.
Occasionally I get chest pains on the left side (to the left of left nipple and below the breast area) of the heart and on the right side (above right nipple by 2in., closer to the heart), but never in the middle of the sternum, I never have pressure, or shortness of breath... no headaches either. I'm also not dizzy ever, maybe RARELY (2-3x since age 17).

But I am trying to resolve THIS problem. I am not sure if it's connected to the other ones.
It's when I oversleep or stay in bed for lengthy times (that time is no decreasing!), I get pain JUST to the right of my left nipple (this is where it originated). Now, when I take a deep breath while sleeping, it suddenly comes on.. I sleep on my left side a lot because of how I cuddle w/ the old lady. So I move to my right, it shifts to that side and the left side, then I try my back, it moves to the center and both sides. Same with on my stomach. When I get up, it takes a few minutes, but normally the pain goes away.

When I was younger, without running tests, a doctor told me this was related to gastritis. She said I should take anti-acids...

What could this problem be? It hurts worse (or suddenly hurts) when I take deep breaths (while laying down and overlseeping)? I never have a fast pulse rate, no skips in beats, no weakness or dizzyness either... all I know is that getting up and moving normally solves the problem! What's going on here? :confused:

  • Hey! I know it's been awhile since you posted this, and I have no answers for you, but if you've figured anything out since then, I'd love to hear it because I have exactly the same symptoms when I sleep for longer periods of time than normal. I don't have high blood pressure, but the rest is pretty much the same. Did you ever figure it out?
