left chest pain too

Hi all,

I have been having chest pain on my left for the past one week. I suspect that the pain is caused by my sleeping position. Whenever I sleep on the side facing left or lying flat, the pain comes. When I sleep facing right, nothing will happen. The pain occurs in such a way that it is a sharp pain whenever I breathe in deeply. If I sit straight up and try to breathe regularly the pain will go. At times, I feel nausea after the pain. I have no history of heart or other problems. I'm very worried. Is it a sympton of heart problem? Please give some advice. I have not seen a doctor yet.
