Pain in lower left esophagus area near the collar bone, painful while swallowing, drinking. Reason?

A few days ago I began having pain in my lower left esophagus region by the collar bone. I thought it might have been injured while giving my three year old a piggyback ride. It hurt for several days when I swallowed or drank. Now after several days it is just tender in the area with slight sensation that something isn t right when I burp. Any thoughts?

Thank you for the query.

Upper left abdomen is where a part of stomach is located. So generally stomach issues causes such pain. Diaphragm trauma (can be caused by increased abdominal pressure) can cause stomach movement to the thorax and symptoms described by you (hiatal hernia).
But most probable is muscles pain which should go away in few days. If not, than please consult your doctor.

Hope this will help.
