See a Doctor: Burning pain can be due to many things. Nerve entrapment, herniated disc, reflux disease or heartburn, heart problems, muscle spasm all can cause this symptom. If it does not improve, please see your doctor for further evaluation.

Also to consider: Consider shingles sometimes the pain is there without the rash see your doctor b/c treatment is available and can help.
