In brief: Disc or muscular
Many causes. First i would get a thoracic mri.
Pain may be associated with bulging / herniated discs, arthritis of the spine. If all tests are normal, pain maybe associated with muscular spasms and pain. Pain can cause insomnia which can exacerbate upper back pain. Anxiety and depression can also cause or exacerbate upper back pain.
