I have been having a sharp pain in the middle of my back during the night lasting about 15 minutes. The pain is also in my throat. This is the first time the pain is still there, although it is very dull at this point. I also feel somewhat anxious and some pressure. Any ideas? Thanks.
I recommend you contact your physician for an evaluation to determine the cause of the pain. The fact that this has moved to your throat makes me wonder if it could be related to your stomach/esophagus, though it could also be something with your circulatory system that needs to be checked right away. Whenever you're suffering unexplained pain that's causing you this kind of distress, it's always better to see a doctor about it as soon as possible.
