Regarding upper back issues of mine, overused and stretched muscles, traps / rhomboids etc. What causes the muscles to give a burning sensation?

Exercise or strain: New exercise or activity? May cause dom delayed onset muscle soreness (typically about 48 hours after the increase use of those muscles). May last a few days to a week or two. Alternatively, sudden/acute burning may indicate a strain, which may take a few weeks to several months to resolve. Massage or foam roller may help, if this is not a muscle strain.

What causes a burning sensation in the viens in my fore arms? Also the muscles in my calfs keep locking up.

What causes a burning sensation in the viens in my fore arms? Also the muscles in my calfs keep locking up.

Don't know: I have never heard of burning in forearm veins unless something has been injected into them. Assuming you are not doing that (and maybe especially if you are) then you should see a clinician to find the cause of this and the leg cramps. Probably need blood tests as well. Meanwhile, keep your arms above your heart level and try some heat on them as well as your leg muscles to see if it helps.

Could stress cause my cervical/brachial plexus to flare up as well as surrounding muscles to cause pain and almost a burning sensation?

Yes.: Stress causes spasms of muscles of the back or of the neck and can cause tension headache. Depending on the muscles involved it can cause the neck and spinal muscles to tighten and compress the nerves and cause symptoms of nerve compression which is what you have.

Diagnosed unknown problem with muscles in my hips since age 6, causes knees and ankles to turn in when walking. Pain and burning sensation more often?

Femoral anteversion: On of the more common causes of "In/toeing" is known as femoral anteversion, in which the femoral neck of the hip is angular end anteriorly. This can cause a person to swing the leg internally at the hip to try to out it in a more neutral position. It can be associated with symptoms along the tensor fascia Lata that can cause hip and knee pain. Therapy can often help dramatically for symptoms.

Could anxiety cause you to feel burning sensation in parts of the body? I felt hot on right side in the back of my neck all the way down to my arm

Yes... but: Anxiety can cause a sensation of burning skin by triggering the 'fight or flight' response. However there are medical conditions that can cause a sensation of burning skin. Do see your pcp to rule this out before saying it's all from anxiety. Best wishes.

Can acid reflux cause burning sensation in left shoulder and arm pit chest area. If I touch where it hurts it hurts worse?

Can acid reflux cause burning sensation in left shoulder and arm pit chest area. If I touch where it hurts it hurts worse?

No, this isn't GERD: This symptoms constellation is not consistent with reflux disease. It should be checked out just the same. The fact that the pain is worse when you touch the area suggests that it is either musculoskeletal or nerve pain. Is it related to meals? I'm wondering why you are associating this with reflux? The best way to approach this is to visit with your doc and have an exam done with some tests.
