What's this symptom?

I got feeling like that my heart is burning, it's not the exact word what I want to express though. I feel like this whenever my boyfriend tell me something cold or act wrong. What's this symptom? I feel it inside of my body, part of my chest, between chest bone I think.... Is it dangerous symptom? It occurs often.......What's this?

This sounds like anxiety. When your boyfriend acts cold and wrong it triggers an anxious response, giving you the symptoms you describe.
How often is he making you feel this way?

I agree with perch, sounds like anxiety.If relationships with anyone make you feel this way, you might want to re think where the relationship is going and if it is worth it all.

It could be anxiety for sure and even a mild panic attack.  This is assuming that you've ruled out heart burn.  I'd recommend talking to your doctor about this and starting some talk therapy to help.  It usually worsens over time if left to continue.  good luck

That's heartache!   That's what old fashioned heart ache is.

Many people, when you get your feelings hurt,  or you ache about something in an emotional way,  it makes your heart physically hurt.   That's where all the analogies between feelings and hearts come from.

I think few people actually experience this,  so when they say heartache they think they're just taking about something that is a saying,  not a physical pain.

When I have a sadness,  I literally have a heavy heart.  There is an expanded,  weighty feeling in my chest that literally feels like  a heavy heart.

And when my feelings have been terribly hurt - or my kids feelings, my heart aches.  It's as real a pain as strep throat or a sprained ankle.  

I was pretty old before I realized not everyone feels this.  ;D   But,  welcome to the club,  ght.

I do not really experience that although when I think about it--------- it does almost physically hurt when my heart feels broken (according to my primary care doctor--- written in my health chart . . . I have a broken heart due to my mother's death.  Can't make the pain go away even though it is 15 years later).  

Rock, you sound like a cool chick.  I like your depth of emotion.  And I think you gave the perfect answer here.

I do really appreciate to all of you guys that did comment for me :) I think my symptom can be expressed 'heartache' as Rockrose. I have felt like really hurt something inside of me. Actually I did experience when I was next to him, now we are kind of seperated physically because of my circumstance. I was relly surpresed whenever I got feeling this way, cause I've never felt it before. That's why I'm very afraid of my symptom. Now I think I did really love him, so I felt this way. Am I right? After seperating with him, it seems less than before. I got it sometimes though when we talk to each other. hmmmm......  Anyway thank you guys for the comments, it does really help me :)
