So about a month ago, I was at work. It was a graveyard shift and I was tired so I drunk 2 rockstar energy drinks. The next day I woke up in pain. In the middle of my chest it felt like a pulling sensation that started from the top of my chest to my upper abdomen to my upper back. it felt like the whole top half of my body was nothing but pressure and inflammation. Sometimes I would wake up in the middle of the night with this problem. I thought I was having a heart attack so I would go and use the restroom. After I used the restroom, the pulling feeling went away. it only happens when I lay on my back for long periods of time. I went to the hospital and got blood test, chest xrays, and ekg. All normal. No pain but just a disturbing feeling in the center of my chest and my upper back. Can anyone help me??
