Hi Doc's. I would like to know what causes discomfort in the mid section of my back? It comes and goes.

In brief: See your doctor soon

Mid back pain can be anything especially for a young female.
So the best idea is to see your PCP and have an examination done to determine the cause. It could be inflammatory, digestion, musculoskeletal, pelvic, related to kidneys, heartburn, referred pain, or trauma. So there's a whole host of reasons that can cause those, and it's best to be seen and evaluated by your doctor.
