Disc: Pressing on nerve. Consider physical therapy, anti-inflammatory, muscle relaxant. If in a month, no better, an MRI of your back reasonable.

Can be anything: Depends where it's radiating down in your back? To your shoulders? Low back? Upon inspiration only? When you sit or walk too? That will help pinpoint location. Sometimes, if U sleep funny, you can create a muscle spasm or rib strain. So when you breathe in, U feel the discomfort more. You can always get a 2nd opinion from an osteopathic doctor (DO) to have that evaluated and treated & get relief.
