Hi everyone, as the title says I have trouble falling asleep. The trouble is that I always feel a light pressure/ numbing feeling from the left side of my chest sometimes it go all the way up to the shoulder.
I know that I have a heart murmur but still waiting for a time appointment at a cardiology to determine if it's an physiological, it's an systolic heart murmur and I've gotten a resting heart rate at 90, don't know if it have changed at least that was observered in may. Because of covid-19 I don't know when I will get my appointment. A few years ago I had a resting heart rate between 70-80.
It have gotten worse in may I would only feel the pressure while sleeping on the left side only, then also on the back and now I'm also feeling it sometimes when I sleep on the right side. Worse is still left side, it will cause me to dry cough sometimes.
I'm a person that like rolling around and sleeping in different positions but now I can only sleep on one side and sleeping on my stomach is not my thing even though I won't feel the pressure.
I can sometimes feel the pressure even when I move around or sit, it have become something I'll feel every day. So some days it take hours for me to fall asleep and I'm just rolling around on the bed, trying to find a position that make the numbing feeling go away.
Do any of you have a tips on how to make it easier to fall asleep.
