Pain in Diaphragm Area after Sleeping

This does not happen every night, but is pretty common.
Some mornings I wake up with a soreness in my abdomen/diaphragm area.  It feels almost the same as when I've done crunches or something.  It hurts to breathe, turn, laugh, etc.

Has anyone experienced something similar?

I have the same problem in the morning!  I have had worsening trouble breathing and I am wondering if this is caused by labored breathing while I am sleeping?  Sleep apnea maybe?  Hard to say.  I am 36 and have been to many, many doctors and all tests are normal and yet breathing is getting worse.

Have you also felt difficultly breathing? In general I feel as though my abdomen cannot fill with air or push up correctly.  Once I felt as if there was a tight band around it for 3 days.  And each morning I wake up with a sore abdomen which subsides after breathing normally after waking up.  But in general, difficult to breathe.  I can't stand my ribs having any pressure as it makes me feel like I really can't breathe.
