Thanks for posting your query.
The muscle stiffness in your back and the breathing problem may be related to a muscle spasm or a lung disorder. A physical examination is necessary to find out the exact cause.
You need to consult an orthopedician who will advise you an MRI scan of the spine to assess the degree of deformity and any nerve root damage. The treatment usually involves rest with pain killers in combination with the muscle relaxants along with good physiotherapy exercises.
Meanwhile you can do a hot fomentation and apply a local analgesic gel on the area to relieve the spasm.
I hope this answers your query.
