Can COPD cause burning, tingling sensations in the upper back lung area? It feels like my upper back and chest is tight and heavy feeling.

Not usually. COPD usually causes shortness of breath, chest tightness, wheezing, and coughing. The sort of symptoms you are describing may be something more significant. I would get checked out by your doctor. He or she can listen to your lungs and maybe get blood tests or a chest xray.
