Hi XXXXXXX
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
The burning feeling in the localized area can be as a result of faulty posture for long period. It is the case if the problem is of short term. It should not last more than 2-3 days.
If it is their for weeks then it can be due to a neurological or a skeletal problem and should be evaluated by physical examination and imaging tests.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!
