?endoscopy: Gerd can burning in throat and chest discomfort as well as causing food to get caught in esophagus. Costochondritis is inflammation of junction of ribs with cartilage in front of chest along the side of sternum. Usually tenderness to touch and pain with movement but not burning in throat. You need to see G-I doctor since meds not working. You may need someone to look down the esophagus.
