Chest pain, shortness of breath on lying down, occurred on smoking after a long time. Cause?

Hi, I am a 27 year old woman who quit smoking over 5 years ago, and even then I only smoked every now and then, never got addicted. Well over the weekend, I end up smoking a black and mild, only 3 puffs but now the next day my chest has been hurting. I have shortness of breath when I lay down. Can there be something wrong?

Smoking can lead to inflammation & ulceration in your lower eating pipe. Your symptoms are synchronous with these. Totally stop smoking & visit a gastroenterologist.
