Deep tickling itch in upper right chest area and right neck. dr didn't seem too concerned could this be gerd or muscle strain from doing planks?

Maybe: Lots of possible causes, including GERD and muscle strain could cause this. I would worry if it is a new symptom that it might be the first sign of shingles. If a rash develops, see a doctor.
