    I have this pain in my middle back near where my ribs are, I went to the Doctor and all they said was it could be back pain. The pain comes and goes, and when it hits the pain is really severe, I thought at first it could be kidney stones but the doc said that the pain is too in high in my back, The pain lasts about not even a minute but it is extreme, it happens more at night?Any suggestions on what it could be, Ive been having it for about 4-5 months now.

    I get something that sounds similar – intense pain that takes my breath away for a minute or so, but then goes away.  In my case, it's caused by a muscle spasm.  Whenever I get regular massage or myofascial release therapy, I don't seem to have the problem.  I think doing some stretching exercises for my back helps, too. 

     

    I don't know if you could be having the same problem, but if it continues or gets worse, you may want to see an orthopaedic specialist to make sure it's nothing more serious.

      Thank you so much for the answer, I learned I had hip dyplasia when I was growing up and then I found out I have scoilosis when I was about 18 years old I am now 29. Thanks again. I was very unsure about the doctor because now I am taking Ibuprofen it doesnt seem to help much,  I will look into what you mentioned.
