could be hiatus hernia

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

I have read your query and understand your concern.

Rumbling in the left side of your chest when lying down could be due to hiatus or diaphgramatic hernia.

You need to show to a surgeon for a clinical examination and get an endoscopy done to help reach the diagnosis.

Further management will depend upon the findings by the above two.

Hope I have been helpful.
