Back pain, shortness of breath and fatigue

Patient : I have pain in my lower back on sides. It is especially painful with any jarring movement and also when I cough. I have a constant, moderate headache. The pain is also in my upper back between the shoulder blades but is less severe. I also have mild shortness of breath as well as a need to cough however, the cough is not productive. Any suggestions? I have also had a cold? Flu? for the past 2+ weeks
Symptoms:  Fatigue, back pain, headache, cough
