Our expert says:
It is possible that you have nerve impinchment of the back with a radiating pain to the front of the chest. I suggest that you consult a pain specialist for an investigation and possible nerve block. Chronic inflammation of the bone and cartlidge of the ribs can also have the same effect. Injections with cortisone can be helpful.
I presume that other factors, like gastric reflux and heart pathology have been excluded.
