Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
There can be a few causes.
It can be due to nerve impingement in the spine.
It can cause severe pain & burning here.
Arthritis of spine can be a factor.
Though heart issues like angina can cause burning, pain here but as it is affected by lifting of arm, it is more likely from nerve impingement.
If the symptom continues, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
Other pain medicines like gabapentin, lyrica can be helpful.
X ray or MRI scan can be taken.
You can take Tylenol now.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
Your satisfaction is my goal.
If you are happy with my answer please click on 5 star rating so that I can get the credit for helping you.
Wish you healthy life.
Regards.
