Recommend Dr eval.: I would see your OB-GYN or primary care doctor regarding this. It is definitely abnormal to be having stabbing/burning pain on or around your nipples unless there is an irritant (chemical or physical) that is causing it or there could be a problem underneath the skin layer causing the pain. It is hard to say without a more detailed history and exam however. I would not ignore it. ...Read more

The heart burn is usually esophogeal reflux, but could also be heart pain. The burning when breathing may be bronchitis. You need to be seen to evaluate these multiple issues. ...Read more
