There are a number of possible conditions which can cause these symptoms. If you are otherwise healthy, muscular pain is a likely cause. Other possible causes include pleuritic inflammation or infection.

I once had fluid in my chest is it possible for it to come back? My chest hurts while breathing in and my back hurts what does this mean
Fluid in the chest:
At your age (17) is more likely than not to be due to a VIRAL infection of the LINING of the lung (Pleura)
Fluid is a "reaction" to that fluid kind of like a blister.
After the fluid goes away the pain from "rubbing" of the lining (s) (when you breathe in) may "travel" to your upper back. This will ALL gradually improve and if it doesn't a chest xray (or CT) is probably a good idea.
Hope this help ...Read more
