Back pain when taking deep breath. What could it be?

My back hurts when i take a deep breath? Yesterday i felt like i had air stuck in my throat and felt like i just had to take a deep breath, but when i tried, my upper back hurt. it happens rarely but when it happens i can only take shallow breaths and i feel like that s not enough to breathe. I don t have asthma or anything similar,i m 14 and never had any problems with my back, what could it be?

Hello, it could just be because of gastritis. Other possibility is a disc problem but is unlikely at your age and in the upper back. Its more common in the lower back. If it happens more frequently I would suggest you to get checked physically by a doctor. Take care.
