My shoulders bothering me. When I lift my arm a little burning pain in the 'corner' of my joint. Neck and upper chest feel tight. Surfing a lot.
Sounds like you are suffering from a tendonitis/strain in one of your Rotator cuff tendons!! Upper chest muscle strain may also be playing a role in your symptoms. SURFING will do it!!! Rest and take anti-inflammatory medications for a while. See a Physical Medicine DOC Physiatrist who can analyze what you are doing while surfing to strain your shoulder/upper chest
Hope this helps

Cough: In general, a symptom of coughing can first be addressed by over the counter measures. Cough specific syrups or tablets are readily available. Decongestant medicines can help if the cough is related to sinus drainage. Giving the cough ample time to clear is advisable but if you develop fevers, shortness of breath, chest pains, or bloody sputum, or a long cough, it may be time to see your doctor. ...Read more

Constant acidity,dry cough,burning in throat+chest when exercising,breathing trouble.Is my sleep apnea causing this or is it acidity causing apnea?
Chicken & egg: There is an association between acid reflux and sleep apnea.

I am hot but no fever, sore throat from sneezing and athma. Feels like my arm is burning or it changes to my neck or just chest burning..Bp is normal?
Doesn't sound good: A primary care doctor can evaluate to see what problems and treatments are needed. A person with asthma needs medication in cases of allergies, colds, flu's, or pneumonia (so his asthma won't get worse and worse, which in an unlucky person can be fatal). Burning, or other strange sensations, in the arm and neck may be from irritation to nerves as the nerves come out of the spine (dr. Can check). ...Read more
I have a fever 100.2 , ear ache and sore throat . My chest hurts when I breath like a burning feeling or soreness . Is this a cold or something else?
Febrile illness: This sounds as if you should go to see a doctor ASAP, either in an ER or an Urgent Care facility. Although this may be a viral illness, the chest burning is concerning and it would be advisable to be examined and perhaps have a chest x-ray and perhaps some labs depending upon what the doctor examining you finds. Good luck and best wishes. ...Read more
