@1006 Waking up to a burning chest every morning is certainly something to explore.
You'll notice that I moved your question to an existing discussion. I did this so you could connect with members who have gone through something similar. It looks like mentor @merpreb already responded. Below I have linked a separate discussion that may also be of interest to you, as it relates to GERD and chest pain.

May I ask if you were referred for any testing or specialists?
@1006 – Good morning. Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I hope that you had a better night's sleep last night. I get that burning feeling too and I have GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the ring of muscle between your esophagus and your stomach. This ring is called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). If you have it, you may get heartburn or acid indigestion.) The ring, to my knowledge, is a valve that opens and closes when you eat. If it doesn't close all the way that's when the acid in your stomach (yucky, hurtful fluid and gases) comes back up and you can have a terrible taste in your mouth.
If you have only gone to your PCP about this you might want to get some testing done by a Gastroenterologist to make sure that the burning isn't from something more serious. You could also try some tums to see if it helps until you have an answer. If it is a muscle attachment tear (exercise, heavy lifting?) then I would go to an Orthopedic doctor.
Did your doctor suggest doing anything about the burning?
