Burning below sternum

I have had burning/pain below my sternum where the rib cage separates.......I am unemployeed and do not have insurance.  Any thoughts.  I do have CAD but when I first had those symptoms they were in the middle of the chest.  I exercise daily and watch my diet.  I am on plavix,asprin, lipitor, and blood pressure meds.  
I don not believe that this is heart related, symptoms are lower than the chest and when I exercise I do not have issues.  

Any thoughts........thank you !!!

I was feeling the pains for a couple months. But since i got off meds, that were treating H Pylori, i've been feeling 80-90% better. I dont know if i pulled a muscle, am getting Phys Therapy as well, or if was gastro related. hang in there, the best thing is to try the diff tests to eliminate causes. Its a pain but its worth the peace of mind.
