??? heartburn/indigestion??

Hello doctors

I was wondering if you are able to help me. Yesterday i thought i had what was heartburn. I had an uncomfortable chest like sternum area & slight burning up my throat, with this pain almost behind my shoulder blades when i breathed in. I am fit & healthy. The only medication i am is orlistat (xenical) as i am a few stone overweight.
I do suffer with repetitive strain injury with my neck & shoulders due to using a computer & poor posture- so wondered weather i had strained something??

I would appreciate some help & advice on your thoughts!!
