See docotor ASAP: The thyroid would not cause burning in the chest but if large enough could cut off circulation to brain and compress the airway. If you have not done so already see doctor for evaluation and ultrasound to see how large thyroid is. Swallow study and ct can be done to eval for compression of airway and esophagus and as about gerd given burning in middle of chest.
