      Hello, sounds similar to my experience. It was almost as if I could feel the chemo filling my breast area. Pain wasn't sharp but almost a burning achey feeling. It happened every-time, didn't last long afterwards, a couple of hours maybe but afterwards it seemed that I could feel my chest tightening up. Good luck to you.
