I am a 22 male.. i have GERD, stomach ulcer, anxiety and i kind of strained my chest muscles two weeks ago.. but for the past two years whenever i am laying on my stomach i would feel an intense ripping feeling under the left breast as i lift my lower body up and move it to the left wi, when im standing up or sitting down i feel no pain at all.. its only when im laying down and move awkwardly like that


the picture above gives you an idea on the way i sleep with one arm raised straight but actually laying on my stomach
took several EKG's at my doctors office and the emergency room and it comes back normal BUT a slow heart beat.. 49-60 it jumps to 70-80 whenever i take a deep breathe

X Ray and Cat Scan came out clean but im not sure if their looking vessels instead of bones and muscles

also currently deep breaths bring a burning or light rip feeling on the left chest directly under the nipple

i wanted to know if anyone ever experienced something like this? im setting up an appointment for the heart specialist tomorrow but it might take awhile.. i also have a PCP clinic appointment at the hospital, is there any tests that i should tell them to run that can spot this? thanks
