A 29-year-old male asked:

what is the definition or description of: chest burning?

Family Medicine 23 years experience
Heartburn: Usually if your chest burn, it could be an issue with digestion. Although whenever you have issues with your chest be sure to contact your dr to be evaluated. Usually heart problems cause chest pressure or pain right under the sternum, but not chest burning. The esophagus runs through the chest and if its irritated, it could give the feeling of burning. Hope this helps.

Air bubble in chest : Pneumomediastinum or air in the chest can come from lungs, trachea or esophagus. It can happen from deep sniffing, drug abuse, and heavy exertion. I see a number of teenager with lot of air in the chest from unknown cause. Air can also come from root canal. Air bubbles can also mean infection. It may be sign of grave disease process or it may be totally benign requiring simple observation.
