See a Neurologist: https://goo.gl/images/EhhMWE The area you are describing corresponds to the Thoraic T 3, T4, T5 vertebra in the back. I enclosed above dermatome link for you to see how the body nerve system runs. A specialist in the nervous system is a neurologist. This is a Doctor that will test the skin location first for soft touch then pin prick and begin to work out the problem for a diagnosis.
