Yesterday I suddenly got a pain in my lower throat/upper chest that hurt when I breathed deeply or burped. I still have it today, what is this?

In brief: Pleuritis /GERD

If the symptom is associated with breathing alone and you had a recent upper respiratory infection, it's possible to be related to inflammation of the respiratory system.
It could also be esophageal reflux. You would need to see your doctor for definitive diagnosis and treatment.
