Upper Back Pain Cycling - Fit

I'm currently training for a 200 mile gravel ride. Whenever I get to around 60-70 miles my upper back starts to kill.

Curious if I might be better on a 54 or 56 frame? I'm currently riding a Niner RLT Steel in a 56.

I'm 70inches tall and have an actual inseam of about 33.5. I always thought I should be on a 56 being 5' 10" however most fit calculators are suggesting a 52 or 54. All of my pervious bikes have had short 90mm stems too.

I'll be getting a bike fit as soon as things clear with Covid however I thought i'd post here in the meantime.
