What you describe can be an indicator of a nerve impingement, which is a potentially serious problem and one you should ask a doctor or physical therapist about. You certainly shouldn't take advice from the internet. That being said: don't do anything that aggravates it, do some SMR in the thoracic area (roll a tennis ball in there), and try some band pull aparts and YTW's before you go crazy with BTN presses.
