I was laying in bed Sunday night proped up with pillows working on something as well as watching TV. The next morning, I had terrible chest bone pain and some pain in my back. As the day progressed, the pain went away. In the evening again, the pain increased. I tried to lay down Monday night and the pain was so bad in my chest, I ended up sleeping half the night sitting up on the couch. I took Ibuprofen and that seemed to help. Again, the pain subsided during the day and is back again in the evening. My thought is that I compressed my chest bone while proped up by pillows Sunday night. Could there be more going on? The pain is not as bad as Monday night but still very bothersome.
