In brief: Pain

Hi, you do mention your age but is job at a care facility for elderly? Yes, you could have a thoracic strain even involvement of your shoulder muscles.
It is important that you don't strain your body--bending with your legs to lift- also using your arm and back muscles evenly as possible. A chiropractor is a good resource for this problem, as would an orthopedic doc, or physical therapist eval.
