Resperatory-Related Back Pain?
0087Adam posted:
Ok i was just sitting in the funeral home today (my grandma's funeral) and all of the sudden i had a sharp back pain. The pain was almost unbearable; i could hardly move. Ever since then i did a few stretches, the back pain seems to be gone; however my back where my lungs are, mostly on the left side, still has a dull pain to it.

When i take a breath that is medium to deep, my back pain suddenly reappears and my lower neck (back) starts to hurt. It hurts to move, and when i sit up I feel like my lung is squeezing down my throat, its kind of like a gagging feeling. This has happened before, but never to this scale, and it never lasted more than 5 minutes. It has been about 12 hours now and the pain and discomfort is still with me.
