Indirectly: Pain in the midback can come from rib dysfunction where they articulate with the spine. This can cause difficulty breathing more so because it can be uncomfortable to take a deep breath. Back pain can also be referred from certain organs in the chest and abdomen. I would recommend seeing your doc for further assessment.
