Hi Anggit,

Thank you for asking

Pain that appears suddenly in the right back that causes difficulty breathing in adolescents and young adults is often caused by muscle pain (myalgia). This condition can appear in any part of the body, not only the back, but also the neck, hands, feet, and so on. Various factors can trigger this muscle pain, including:

Overuse (i.e. excessive and repetitive use of muscles)
Injury, for example due to a collision
Lack of certain vitamins or minerals, especially vitamins B1, B6, B12, calcium, potassium, magnesium, vitamin C.
Psychological stress, for example when you are stressed or anxious, chronic fatigue syndrome
Infection, either local infection in the back area, or systemic infection, for example dengue fever, influenza
Drug side effects (eg statin drugs), ACE inhibitors, cocaine
Scoliosis (abnormally curved spine to the side)
Rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation of the joints due to autoimmune disorders), and so on

Pain in the back of a very intense intensity can certainly worsen when breathing in because it involves excessive contractions of the back and chest muscles. This condition can make you suffocate.

Apart from muscle pain, back pain and shortness of breath that you experience can also arise due to other factors, for example GERD (reflux of stomach acid to the esophagus), gastritis, cholangitis, bronchitis, pleurisy, allergies, pneumothorax, psychosomatic disorders, and so on. To ascertain whether your condition is mild or serious, you should check with your doctor immediately so that further observation and treatment can be done. Usually, some drugs and supplements are likely to be prescribed by your doctor as initial treatment. However, if you feel that there is no improvement, the doctor can also direct you to undergo supporting tests, such as X-rays, ultrasound, or others to identify appropriate treatment.


Sleep on a comfortable bed, not resting on the side of the back that hurts
Exercise regularly
Eat more regularly, don't delay
Reduce foods that are prone to triggering worsening of tightness, such as spicy, fatty foods, caffeine, acids
Compress the back pain with warm water or apply topical pain relievers (for example, those containing paracetamol)
Recognize what are the triggers for pain and tightness, and as much as possible avoid it so that complaints do not recur
Do not smoke
Stay away from stress

Hope it helps ..
