Dear Doctors,
I'm Female, 26 years old.
I have back pain since yesterday morning until now, it is really hurt and make me difficult to breath.
I've never been in accident before.
I have gaining weight since 1 year.
I had felt like this before when I was in university (2005), but I never gone to Doctor because I though I was only tired because I had to lift heavy things a lot at that time.
I don't know what kind of disease this is.
Please help me.
Thank you so much.

User avatar Hi Cute_snoopy_80,

You may have a pinched nerve in your back or possibly you may have pulled a muscle.

You may also have some inflammation of the lining of the chest wall and lungs called pleurisy.

If you are having trouble breathing I would strongly recommend you see a doctor as soon as possible to make sure there is nothing dangerous going on.

Also, if your pain is not improving you should see your doctor.

Best wishes.
