Burning Chest Sensation

Have been experiencing recent burning chest, back & limb discomfort corresponding almost precisely to descriptions I've read about costochondritis.  It began shortly after a long, hard day of strenuous outdoor activity in cold, dry air.  Could all the huffing & puffing in the cold have triggered this, and how long might it take to resolve ?  Thanks.

If you haven't yet, I suggest that you get into your Doctor and explain your symptoms.  This could be a serious situation, or it could turn out to be nothing ut you really need to have it checked out.

Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
This can be due to costochondritis, shingles, sore muscles, pinched nerve or due to Scalene Myofascial Pain Syndrome. You can apply a local analgesic and see if it helps. Otherwise consult a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment. Take care!
