Shortness of breath that eases on stretching the back, pressure in front of chest. Suggestions?

recently i have been experiencing a shortness of breath, difficult taking deep breaths. At times when i stretch (crack, manipulate my back) the pressure subsides and i can get a deeper breath. Pressure resides directly in front of lower chest area and directly opposite in the back area Thorasic). could my Thorasic area be pushing on my lungs. I feel no pain except pressure.
