I'm having back pain and it hurts when I breathe deeply. It started yesterday when I laid down on my belly on the couch. I couldn't get comfortable so after I got up it started. The pain is on the left side mid section below the shoulder blade. I looked
Sometimes: Sometimes back pain is so severe that breathing is painful, but this is unusual. The presence of pain with breathing is concerning for lung pain and I would recommend seeing your primary care doctor right away to rule out lung problem.

If no lung or heart problem is found then the pain could be from pulled back muscle or joint problem and your doctor may start you on anti-inflammatory medicine and physical therapy. Good luck! ...Read more

Other causes could be pneumonia, a blood clot to the lung, a popped lung, tumor, or liver or gallbladder inflammation. ...Read more
May be muscle spasm: Sometimes a nerve gets "pinched" as it leaves a vertebra and will cause pain and/or muscle spasm. When you breath in your chest and upper back muscle move and may also irritate that nerve. I would advise consulting with an osteopathic physician. If you were a long time smoker I might be more concerned but at 26 that diagnosis is way down at the bottom of the list. Anyway you should not be smoking. ...Read more
