    What could cause pain across your mid-back?

    I am having pretty severe pain, running from my right side (upper ribs to just below the lower edge of my ribs) all the way to my upper, middle back. Physically, I can barely look down at the floor if I'm standing and it hurts to try to do so. I can feel the muscle tightness in the middle part of my upper back. At night I can't lay on my right side at all without it hurting severely. It varies from day to day as far as the range of my pain goes (sometimes spreads to the left part of my back), but the actual pain is always intense. Does anyone know what I can do to possibly help ease the pain?
