does this sound like a pinched nerve?

I get a sharp pain in my UPPER back that sometimes radiates to the chest. (not going around, but shooting through as if someone stabbed me with a thin sharp knife that went through my back and chest in a perfect line) when i change position it gets better and sometimes i can simlate the pain but going into a different position that puts pressure on that spot. what does it sound like to you?

I have gotten those and the most I have been told is it is muscular. But, you should discuss it with your doc anyway, just in case.

i believe that it may be a slipped disk or just a curve gone wrong, i work at a computer allllll the time and sometimes slouched over doing work. could possibly be a sliped disk in worst case maybe?
