Re: Burning Chest
Angina can cause burning in the chest and often radiates into the jaw, teeth, neck or arms, particularly left arm. It usually comes on with exertion or extreme stress and improves with rest. May be accompanied by sweating, nausea, shortness of breath.
Acid reflux and esophageal spasms can feel similar but are brought on by cold liquids (spasm) or lying down, getting too full, bending over (reflux). If I were you, I would make an appt with Dr. now to have some tests scheduled, like a treadmill stress test, and barium swallow or UGI to sort it out. Esp. with your family history.
