Hit on middle back. Sore to touch, hurts while coughing. Is it serious?

I was sitting on the pool table at a bar and this guy punched me full force in my right middle back. It is very sore to touch and has been for 3 days. Every time I bend down or cough it hurts. If I press on it the pain radiates down to my buttock. The pain is like an injection being inserted into the buttock/ hip/ lower back. Please help. Just want to know if it anything serious or whether it is soft tissue damage.

Spine Surgeon 's  Response
Most likely it is soft tissue injury. However I would suggest to get thoracic spine Xrays AP/Lat to rule out any spine fracture.
