I know I have breathing problems while laying flat, but My thing is what causes all the cramping when I try and roll over in my sleep. It feel like everything inside is being squeezed in my chest and stomach area and trust me it hurts like hell. And like this morning I feel sore like when you workout the day before. Any input?
Sounds like sleep apnea. It would be cutting off the air. And then your muscles are oxygen starved - yielding cramps.
Talk to your pulminary doctor.

I agree with Ray. Call your pulmonary dr. and he can order an at-home sleep study. I think that it's just the monitor that dr.s put onto your finger to get an oxygen count. They hook it up to a machine and leave it with you for the night and then read the results the next day. Let me know if you do this, please. Thanks and good luck.
