Feel like I can't breath and my back hurts.What do I do?

I am 13 and just about an hour or two ago it was becoming very hard for me to breath . At least it feels like it is. I have to take deep breaths and when I do it never feels like I m taking enough breath in. Also, my back feels weird. I don t know if it hurts or if it feels streached. My parents don t smoke and I am very fit. Also, I haven t exercised since yesterday. I hate this feeling! What do I do?

if its happened for the first time only then u need to observe what precipitated the attack?
u seem to be quite health concious person n in apparently good health;most likely its just a back muscle spasm which felt like tightnes in your chest.
I find this answer helpful

feeling of pain in back some times brings in choking feeling of inability to breath. This can be due to some muscle spasm in back or due to weight lifting or due to cold or even abdominal gas. sip hot boiling water and add garlic and asfoetida in your diet.

I was laughing pretty hard earlier today and I feel like I messed my back up. I got this itchy sensation in the middle of my back when I stopped laughing. And between 3-5 minutes later I get a strong pain in my mid-upper back when I breathe In half capacity. Certain movements or sleeping positions are nearly impossible because I can’t bare the pain. Idk if it is a pulled muscle or something else. And I also get this weird thing when I’m about to sneeze it stops out of no where like I can’t sneeze? I need answers, Thank you.

For years Ive been bloated, gassy and cramped. I cant gain weight. I wake up with gas and bad taste in my mouth. I have no sinus infections but I always have bad breath ( I brush and floss daily). Ive done almost every test possible and there all clear. My doctor says its IBS and there's nothing he can do, to help (which I find hard to believe). Im a 43 yr old male 5' 11" and 140lbs.
I calculated my diet at approx. 2800-3000 calories a day. My job is not physically demanding and Ive stopped weight training.
Any help would be just great, thanks.
