Pressure in chest alternating with sternum. Sensation corresponding on back. Common?

I am experiencing feeling of pressure on my left chest alternating with my sternum. The sensation is also felt on corresponding locations on my back. At times I can only characterize the feeling like sunburn . I am getting quite a workout on tests but getting no answers. Are these common symptoms? If so, are they generally from a common cause?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

     The limited information provided is not sufficient enough to arrive at an appropriate conclusion and further suggestion... / You have not stated your personal habits, family history, or co-morbidities, even age or gender...which could influence the diagnosis and outcome...

     Your symptoms do not suggest Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) – pain from the heart is oppressing, in central chest (and left), worse on effort, relieved by rest, may radiate to shoulders and arms, associated with sweating and so on.

     You need examination and investigation...

Take care     
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
