“The only known risks of sleeping on the left side might be experienced in people with prevailing heart disorders and might include pain, changes in ECG activity as the electrical currents or signals are interrupted, difficulty breathing and discomfort.”

Left side sleeping can trigger alterations or shifting of the heart movements but has not shown to heighten risks of heart attacks.”

The expert added: “There are no other sleeping positions associated with heart attack risks, though right-side sleeping can exert pressure on the vena cava, causing discomfort.”

What’s more, pregnant women are sometimes advised to sleep on the left side of their body and avoid sleeping on their back to ease pressure on the uterus, which is a known risk factor for deep vein thrombosis.
