Laying Down Hurts

If I spend too much time in an upright position during a day, by the time I go to bed its torture. When I lay down all the blood rushes to my heart. I've never had a heart attack, but this feels pretty close. I also feel like a cinder block is dropped on my stomach. Its like trying to push a flood through a pin hole. Anyone else have this?

i definitely feel like my upper body gets "flooded" when I lie down-- head and chest. I think this is part of what goes on with my ongoing nocturnal chest pain episodes that I get after lying down after returning from a bathroom trip. My current cardio thinks the big shifts in fluid may be triggering vasospasm-- as it goes from fullness to actual chest squeezing, shortness of breath, and left arm pain. midodrine helps.
