Brief Answer:
Gastritis....

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Burning sensation under the lower sternum is typical of acute gastritis unless the sensation you perceive is over the skin. I would suggest to try antacid / prilosec OTC and see if you feel better. Gastritis will respond to antacid / prilosec medications.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.

Regards
