Have burning pain below left armpit. Gets worse while laying down. Cause?

Im 31yrs old 2 days ago I started getting this throbbing, burning, nagging pain right below my left arm pit near the breasts. But it s not my breast just the area beside it below the arm pit. When I lay down it gets worse and I have to change position to relieve the pain. Im healthy as far as I know not over weight. Im fit. What could it be? Thanks for your time. :)

Thanks for writing to us.
The burning pain below the left armpit is likely to be due to a nerve root irritation at the level of cervical or thoracic spine. An MRI scan will help in detecting the cause.
