Hello this is Dr. Salama,

It sounds like you did in fact pinch a nerve due to the tightness of the bra.

I would recommend icing the area for 20 min every hour for 5 hours/day x 1 week.

Take Motrin 400mg by mouth 3x/day as needed for the pain and to relieve the inflammation

If the burning sensation does not resolve in 2 weeks you may need to consider a consultation with a neurologist

Let me know if you have any other questions. If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question. Thank you.
