Thoracic pain: Thoracic pain is a nonspecific complaint which could be caused by any number of things, including pathology within the chest (i.e. Heart or lungs), cervical or thoracic spine pathology (i.e. Degenerative disc, herniated disc), soft tissue problems (i.e. Myofasciitis), etc. Initial treatment with progressive activity and anti-inflammatory meds is reasonable. See a physician if symptoms persist.
