Q.

why do I feel pressure on my chest and difficulty in breathing when I lay down?

I am 23 years old. 20 days ago I feel mild or light pain in my heart for 2 hours. after that I feel difficulty in breathing when I lay down. I feel like I am going to die. I also feel like there is so much weight on the chest and i can't breathe. sometimes I also feel nausea and woke up at night. should I be concerned, doctor?

If these symptoms have been persistent now for 3 weeks you should see your doctor.  If it's only when you lie down it could be related to acid coming up the food pipe or potentially your heart.  It will be good to check it out and make sure everything is okay.
