Regarding your first problem, I would like to inform that there are various reasons for that kind of back pain ranging from simple muscle strain to spine problems like vertebral disc bulge, disc prolapse, nerve impingement etc. Some of the important causes for these include your sitting posture, overweight, any history of trauma or even unknown cause in some cases. To identify the exact cause physical examination is mandatory as it gives lot of hint to the diagnosis and investigations like X XXXXXXX spine and MRI are useful.

Regarding your second problem, the reasons for this may be anxiety or very rarely some cardiac rhythm disorders (Cardiac arrhythmias). Investigations like ECG, Holter Monitoring will be helpful after physical exam.

Take Care!
