chest pain when breathing + bloated abdomen

had this pain for weeks. every morning when waking it is very painful to deep breathe. at first i had pain in chest area, left side, i thought it was related with my heart. pain is directly under my ribcage as well, as if to be my diaphragm with noticable pain upper left side near breast bone area. I feel as if i cannot get a full complete breath. I also have a bloated stomache with these symtoms (symptoms).It feels as if my lung capacity is diminished somewhat in the mornings until I do some deepbreathing ,i'll deep breathe for a while until the pain seems to subside, the bloating stays til later in the day, the diaphragm pain subsides to a dull ache in the upper left side, but my chest pain still hurt when deep breathing. My doctor says I'm fine, I've had a chest xrays, ecg, thyroid test, cbc- little low. we can't seem to find an answer.If i'm fine why am I in pain everyday of my life? I have anxiety around bedtime, because I know i'll wakeup to the pain...I don't want anymore antidepressants or sleeping meds...can you give some information? I appreciate your help!
