Upper back & rib cage pain all day.now 1 sharp pain between breasts over to right & straight through to back.felt like electricity. Cardiac anxiety!

Not typical

Breasts_engorged
This is not typical for cardiac pain or disease, but you do want to talk with your physician about it. You could be experiencing some digestive issues, including stomach, gall bladder, or pancreas. Depending on severity and whether you're able to contact your physician on the weekend (today is Saturday) you may need to be seen in an Emergency Room.

There are MANY causes of SEVERE RIGHT sided pain where you describe. Gallbladder disease (cholecystitis and/or stone) may be the cause OR kidney infection/abcess/stone is another possiblity. A simple ultrasound and blood tests can help with the diagnosis. If the pain 'wraps to the stomach' then pancreatitis or ulcer are other possiblities so it is time to GET SEEN. Hope you are better soon!

Upper back/neck pain from poor posture and lack of stretching.. Shortness of breath from rib cage restriction. Dizziness when standing. Inflammed Back?

Out of balance

Dizziness
You may be deficient in 25-OH vit D3, magnesium and Vit K2. Dizziness on standing can come from low blood pressure. Heat, topical magnesium oil and gentle stretching are all helpful for pain and stiffness. Getting a good night sleep, eating healthy unprocessed foods every 3 hours while awake , moving through the day , and lowering stress will help restore balance.

Try this

Wear less restrictive or different style bra but the idea is that it be looser around the rib age area. I have seen this work in a number of patients complaining of pain in the distribution that you are referring.

Why am I having constant pain under right rib cage and upper back?

Because

Pain
you probably lean to the right all the time with your mouse in the right hand, phone and other devices. Ask someone to observe you sitting from behind and take a picture when you're not aware to see what your posture is like so you can correct it. Your pain can also be secondary to organ dysfunction such as gall bladder, pancreas, stomach or intestine. See a doctor if it persists.

Treat anxiety & PT

I would undergo counseling to identify and treat the source of your anxiety. You may also benefit from a physical therapist for exercises regarding posture and muscle training.
