See your physician: This type of pain is non-specific and needs to be evaluated. You should see your physician as soon as possible. He/she will determine the tests you need - blood, urine, and imaging - after a history and physical exmination have been performed. This could be a kidney stone; however, there are many other possible causes including something as benign as a muscle spasm or as serious as an aneurysm.

What could cause sharp pain in the middle right side of my back? Hurts when I move, yawn, but it's not the muscle because I've tried rubbing it.

Probably muscular: Probably muscular, can ask for a referral to physical therapy for a few weeks. Also need to consder that is might come from the neck. Yawning causes you to tilt you head back, and the cervical extension might exacerbate facetogenic pain referring to the mid back. Recommend seeing a physician for further evaluation.

Need more evaluation: There is not enough information in your note to be able to give you a good answer. It would be nice to know what type of scan you had - CT, ultrasound? A small stone could easily be overlooked. See a urologist for additional evaluation for a source of pain. Don't overlook a GYN exam as well.
