In brief: Thoracic spine

This may be caused from a pinched nerve in the t spine which may cause burning pain.
Or, it may also be unrelated to the spine. A thorough work up, including exam, imaging and review of your entire history is critical to get down to the bottom of the root cause. You should speak to your regular doc first - he/she should begin the work up. A disc herniation pinching the nerve should be ruled out.
