Breast bone pain. Taking volteran, no relief. Mammogram done, normal. History of GERD. Esophageal bruising?

Had a mamo almost a month ago (mamo was fine) but it was a rough one. My breastbone has been hurting since. Went to the doctor and she put me on Volteran (sp?) for a week. Week is almost up and no change. It hurts when I move a certain way or pull out or push in a chair. I am also burping a lot (I have GERD but take medicine for it). Could my esphagus be bruised too? Thank you
