Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic

hi..., Thoraci Radiculopathy is a rare disorder, in which the nerve roots at the
exit of the vertebra will be compressed due to pressure....
The cause may be due to lesions in the intramedullary region or extramedullary region.., only if the pressure is released you will have relief from pain..
Decompression surgery is needed.., consult neurosurgery...
Hope I have answered your question..
