There can be several causes for this problem, which I won't get into. But a common cause is LPR or GERD. Some people feel referred pain between the shoulders rather than the chest. The pain is usually a burning or cramped sensation.

I would stop smoking, eating greasy foods, and most important don't eat a large meal before lying on your back for at least 4 hours. It is very difficult to do this because hunger is often more uncomfortable than the pain.

I have this problem and I suspect it to be the Flaxseed Oil that I take each morning. I'm going to stop it for a while and see what happens. Will keep you posted.

Knitted ankle support incorporating an anatomically contoured silicone insert lying posterior to the medial and lateral malleolus and over the front of the foot. Used to reduce swelling and soreness.
