I have had a burning pain in my chest below my collar bone in one small area, I had a chest xray and ekg, they were fine, dr. mentioned maybe a lung scan? what do you think? I memtioned that I lift alot could it be a nerve or muscle? dr said NO.
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!
