Hello D7 Ardian,

Pain in the back of the thoracic spine area can be caused by the following things:

Muscular disorders (muscle)
As a result of poor posture, for example when sitting, lying down, standing
Muscle strains or spasm due to the activity of using the muscles in the area are repetitive (repetitive) and too heavy

Spinal disorders
Disruption of the disc (pads) between vertebrae
Abnormal spinal position, for example due to scoliosis
Spinal fracture (there is a history of trauma usually, collisions, falls from height, traffic accidents)
Osteoarthritis and others

Spinal cord disorders, such as spinal stenosis

Because the handling of each of these abnormalities requires further examination such as spinal X-ray or MRI to see the condition of the bones, soft tissue, and nerves in the area.

To temporarily reduce the pain, you can do the following:

Sleep on a flatter base (not with bed foam sinking)
Do stretching and light exercise to train your back muscles and improve posture
Sleep with the pelvic tilt position or when sleeping on a pillow side or between the legs and the whole body facing one side
Compress the painful area with warm compresses or cold compresses 10-15 minutes
Avoid lifting heavy items
Take pain relievers including over-the-counter drugs (not hard drugs) if necessary

Now that the Covid-19 pandemic is happening, it's a good idea to avoid going outside if you don't need it / the emergency department. As much as possible to avoid going to a health facility for a while if there is nothing that needs to be done such as:

Mandatory control (as determined by the doctor)
Clinical emergency situation (in the case of back pain for example: severe pain that is unbearable and does not decrease despite taking pain relievers, can not stand at all, back pain that comes with a history of falling from a height or a traffic accident)
There is a suggestion from medical personnel to conduct an examination related to Covid-19

It aims to break the chain of transmission of Covid-19 disease. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
