Pleuritis--see M.D.: This pain at the end of a deep breath in the back at the age of 27 if you are healthy suggests to me pleuritis or costochondritis. If you have no fever then it is likely not bacterial but viral as it usually is found to be. Regardless, If this is ongoing for more than a couple of days, I would see your doctor. If you have a family history of significant heart disease, I would call your M.D. now

I had coughing/congestion for a week. Now there's back pain under right shoulder blade. Only hurts mildly with deep inhale. Nose is still stuffy.

Should get x ray: There are several possibilities one is that all the coughing caused a muscle spasm and that is what hurts. It could be pleurisy a bit of fluid in the membrane around the lung. It could be a pneumonia although that's normally not painful but you may notice a full sort of breath feeling in inhalation/ the xray will rule out a lot of these quickly/.

Started working out. Today sudden upper left back pain when taking deep breath and now hurts when I move/walk. What could it be?

Muscle strain: You probably have a muscle strain and spasm from working out It can be painful and sharp It does hurt more with movement Rest it, moist heat, and some advil (ibuprofen) If you get shortness of breath or increased chest pain then followup with ER but I feel that it is just a muscle strain at your age

My back pops ever so often when I take a deep breath laying down and I also have back pain that comes and goes. What is the cause of my back pops?

Hypermobility?: If you are double "jointed" then is possible that you have some minor instability of your spine. If you can do most of the following, is possible you are double jointed. 1. Hands flat on the floor with knees extended 2. Hyperextension of the elbow 3. Hyperextension of the knee 4. Thumb touching the forearm 5. Hyperextension of the 5th knuckle hope this helps, www.

What is causing back pain only when leaning to left and taking deep breath?

Hard to say.: If you reproduce this symptom with this particular movement or maneuver, then you are more than likely creating a mechanical problem with bone, ligament or nerve involvement causing your pain. See your pcp for an exam if this is more than a nuissance.

What causes sharp upper back pain when taking a deep breath?

Several things: It could be from a cracked rib or inflamed rib joint. A blood clot caught in the lungs can do this. Irritation of the lung lining can do it too. If you are having trouble catching your breath, call your doctor or go to an urgent care or emergency room.

I caught a breath taking sharp upper back pain in my left side that shot to my abd in the same spot can it be a spasm? On hurts on deep breath

It could be: The doctors who ordered your test would have the best idea, since the considered most of the options. Would obviously also consider things in your upper belly on the left side, since your diaphragm, a dome shaped muscle under your lung, flattens during a deep breath, and pushes on the contents of your upper abdomen.

Sharp back pain when I breath deep, what could this be?

Could be: Slipped rib syndrome or pleuritis. If you have no fever, chills or cold and are otherwise healthy it's probably one of the ribs you slipped our place in your sleep, golf or other activities with rapid twisting.

I get a sharp right lower back pain anytime I move or take a deep breath. What could this be?

Back pain: The most common causes of pain in this area is inflammation of the sacroiliac joint. Also, an inflamed facet joint in the lumbar spine or the sacrospinous ligament can cause this pain. Kidney stones can be a source of pain too. Begin with anti-inflammatory medications and apply ice to the affected area. If the pain persists then see a medical doctor.

New back pain that woke me up last. It feels like it may be my ribs in the back on the right. It hurts to take a deep breath not sure what it is.

Need further eval: It could be simply musculoskeletal such as a rib fracture or pulled muscle. However, your shortness of breath is concerning. You may have a blood clot in your lungs which could cause these symptoms. Your symptoms might be something going on with your lungs or heart so see a healthcare provider as soon as possible or further workup.

The last few days I've been having chest pain on left side feels worse when I take deep breath. Also back pain. Any ideas? When is chest pain serious?

Chest pain: On the left side is serious until you can explain that it isn't your heart. Diaphram sounds involved. Any chance you just upset your stomach with the ibuprofen? Must rule out heart/aorta/abdomin issues then go from there.
