Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Upper torso pain could be muscle spasm or rheumatological pain like polymyalgia rheumatic etc. Needs examination and some work up and management accordingly.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
