Brief Answer:
Thoracic pain

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking

Thoracic back pain can occur as a result of trauma or sudden injury, or it can occur through strain or poor posture over time. The most common cause of thoracic back pain appears to originate from muscular irritation or other soft tissue problems.

I will suggest you radiografy of spinal cord in this aera and pulmonary radiografy at first

Regards
