Sharp back pain

Patient: What do I do, its been over 24 hours now. It hurts when I’m just sitting now. Its not my first time I’ve gotten this pain but its completely random when I do get it. I can do anything

 

 

Symptoms: Tight pain in upper middle back, hurts most when moving. When its at its worse the pain spreads on to my chest and tightens gives me short breath

 

 

Doctor: You have complained of sharp type of back ache which aggravates by sitting. Mostly it could be a sprain or strain, which is always associated with movement restriction and pain on movement. You must consult a doctor at the earliest as the pain involves chest wall causing shortness of breathing.
