Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

I have a sharp pain in upper back when taking a deep breath for about a year or more?

To figure out pain..

Stringio
To figure out pain that happens only with deep breaths, one has to write down on a big calendar: when it happens, exactly what happens, what makes it worse, what makes it better, what food/drink/meds he took that day, what activities/sports he did that day, etc... Take the diary to the Dr. with 3 weeks of data for evaluation. It could be the pleura (the lining), ribs, spine, nearby nerves, etc...

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

Several things

Back
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.

25 yr old female. Chest pain on and off. Rib pain. Both hurt when flexing back and taking deep breath. What could cause this?

? costochondritis

Women
This is an inflamation of your rib joints as they join your sternum (breast bone). Common in young women. It hurts to take a deep breath because that is when those joints move. If significant pain, youcan take ibuprofen and use a heating pad.

Question i fell off an ladder about 10 feet high landed on top of the ladder right on my ribs.my back turned instant black and blue. sometimes when taking a deep breath it hurts,twisting my back,coughing,or even laying on it it is painful, the pain has be

From

From what you described there is a possibility that you could have fractured / broken one or more ribs. I am concerned that with a fall from that height and some of your symptoms that you could have suffered a pulmonary contusion (damage to tissues in lungs). Back in the day people used to tape their chest, to reduce pain. Don't tape your chest ! I recommend that instead of just tuffing it out, you see the doctor to get this fully evaluated. It is better to be safe than sorry. I hope you have a speedy recovery.

Acetaminophen
Talk to your DR about possibility of kidney infection. If you're coughing, you may need a chest xray. Have a urine test. Take tylenol or motrin for now. Apply warm packs.

I have severe upper back pain that gets worse when i take a deep breath. Lower back is also very painful. Any ideas what is or could be causing this?

Upper back pain

Back_pain
Consider rib fracture, costochondritis, muscle strain, pleuritis. Lower back may be a separate issue. Check with your orthopedic spine surgeon.

I am having pain in the right flank area of my back It has been a dull ache for months Lately it hurts even more when I take a deep breath or move differently I do urinate frequently thru the day and evening Not painful though Even hurts when I sneeze It

Many possibilities

Allergic_rhinitis
see your family doctor so he or she can rule out serious problems from a kidney stone to an infection or perhaps a musculo-skeletal issue. it can even be from the lining of your lungs. lastly it could even be something pressing on your urinary system. i wouldn't wait to deal with this.
