Thanks for posting your query.

The external muscle pull or strain would cause pain which is external that is related to muscle and you would have regurgitation of stomach contents due to increased intraabdominal pressure which is manifested as burning sensation.

It usually happens when you go for heavy weight lifting.
Take rest for some time and also slowly go for increment in weights rather than directly going for heavy weights.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wishing you good health.
