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.
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.
