Hello, Welcome to HCM
backpain is mostly due to wrong position of sleeping.
But your complaint of referred pain to spine while eating is quite serious as it points towards dissection of aorta.
If you have thrombing or cutting pain go to your physician immedietely and do complete workup like chest xray, CT aortogram etc. Dont get panic but you have to consult the doc.
Thanking you.
