Last night i didn't have the greatest sleep at all.  When i woke up this morning, I had sharp pains in my chest and upper stomache, like where the diaphragm (sp?) is.  It was like that for a bit, then eventually went away.  Has anyone ever experienced this?

I am sure alot of people here have experianced this or something similar. I am sure they will be by shortly to share thier stories. If you are very concerned you could always check with your doc about it.

I get pains all the time! Chest pain and abdominal pain are the areas that I focus on the most and cause me the most anxiety. Of course if your pain worsens I would get it checked out, but anxiety can certainly cause the pains you describe. Even when i think I am relaxed I will still get pains. It does not take much for me to freak out and start panicking! I hate the fact that I am so sensitive to every little thing in my body!

Thanks everyone!  that makes me feel much better.  come to think of it, i think i did sleep in a bit of an awkward position last night!  I was getting slight pains sitting here now looking at all this stuff and was starting to get worked up again!  i'm slowing calming down now!  i'm so glad i found these forums!

From my understanding chest pains come more in the form of "pressure" rather then pain and that most sharp pains are the result of muscle tension. Ofcourse im nothing close to a doctor and just passing along information. Maybe some stretching will help you out?

If it's anxiety causing the chest pains..deep breathing is the key for me...It is really a good idea to check out your concerns with chest pain with your doctor - it really puts you mind at rest and helps the 'getting better' process.

As one who has been to the ER a few times with chest pains like you describe, I do know that if you have eaten anything it will cause severe pains in your chest . The doctor gave me donnagel and something else. OR it definitely could be severe anxiety which can feel exactly like a heart attack . Like jordaNZone said : check it out with your doctor - that always allieved my fears. Hope you feel better soon!!

Chest pains are usually from A/P
But also could be way too that you slept
If it does continue and you get too worried then I would see th doc
take care
