Thoracic pain: This is unfortunately a very nonspecific complaint and could represent anything from scapulothoracic pathology to cervical radiculopathy to underlying chest pathology (i.e. Heart, lungs). If the pain has been present for over 6 weeks or is severe and waking you at night or if there are any other concerns then you should see a physician.
