Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
If you lift heavy things or weights a lot, then this could be due to a muscle pull or strained muscle or a pinched nerve. Apply local analgesic and a hot compress and see if it helps. It can also be due to inflammation of lining of lung. A burning pain can also be due to dry skin, shingles without a rash or due to costochondritis. If pressing the area causes pain, then it is in muscle, soft tissue or nerve compression or costochondritis. Take a second opinion. Take care!
