Hi Emmanual,
Thank you for your question.

Pain in the upper back is typically associated to an injury to a disc in the upper back such as the thoracic herniated disc or degenerated disc. Overuse of muscle, perhaps a strain of some sort perhaps caused by poor posture.

Do you notice that it comes and goes? Or is it associated with a particular movement or activity?

If you are experiencing any of the following - please seek emergency medical attention immediatly:

Weakness in your arms or legs
Numbness in your arms, legs, chest or belly
Loss of bowel or bladder

I hope this helps.

Be well,
