Having cough, runny nose, severe pain in the back, pain in kidneys while taking deep breaths. History of degenerating discs. Suggestions?

i have had a bad cough for about a week now, this morning ( I thought I was getting better) when i woke i had severe pains in not quite the middle of my back but not real lower, when I breathe deep it is like being punched in the kidneys. the running nose and stuffed up nose has gone away, I am coughing but it also is drying up? My back is killing me. i also suffer from disenigrating disc s and this pain is nothing like that pain?

As you had a cough and runny nose it would have been possibly a viral infection.
Now u have back ache that is increased when u breathe in deep and the pain is like a stabbing pain it is very classical of a pleurisy.
It is very common to get a pneumonia post viral infection either due to the virus itself or some secondary bacterial infection.
Kindly get an xray chest done to rule out things
