What could be causing low back pain, sharp pains under left breast that extends to my back, and gas pain?

It depends: These symptoms don't usually go together, but it could be pleurisy, an inflammation of the lung's outer lining, or peptic ulcer disease.

Also consider a brachial plexus injury. ...Read more

DDx: What is the differential diagnosis (DDx) of chest wall pain? First thing anyone in an ER would want to rule out is heart ischemia or pulmonary embolism (PE) or aortic dissection.
