Redness/burning sensation

3-4yrs ago i had fallen flat on my chest one marble floor while swinging in the rod. At that time i didn't have any issue. But recently i have started having redness on the left side of my chest. When i try to stretch left ribs, i feel little pain inside as if some muscle is stuck and i m trying to pull it(if tried more cracking type of sound from ribs can be heard). However if i sit straight and keep my posture right, i m in much relief. But if i try too much to stretch my muscle redness occurs and can be seen with eyes near mammary area+little below. However during sleep i do not feel any pain as the muscle are in relaxed posture. After having a meal,some kind of burning sensation can be felt. I have done xrays and MRI but all the report says everything is normal. Am i suffering from anykind of allergy or what exactly is it. Please help me with some medicines.

Sleep apnea symptoms

When I go to sleep I usually feel like my nose is stuffed up every night for the past few months. I am very overweight. If I lie on my back I usually wake myself up from loud snoring and shortness of breath but I can sleep on my side and back sometimes snoring sometimes not. I've also been periodically having issues where when I lie down my heart rate gets faster for a little bit and it feels like I have a weight on my chest and it's harder to breathe.

I've had a chest cold for two weeks.

I also have COPD. Nothing I've tried is working. For several days I cough so hard I get lightheaded and disoriented. The other day temporarily passed out. And started shaking. I was not totally unconscious. But I couldn't move. It only lasted about 5 seconds.
