    What causes severe pain in the middle of chest

    Lately I have gotten extreme pain in middle of my chest, and my back hurts straight behind that pain.  It is not my gall bladder, since I've had that taken out.  Could it be a bleeding ulcer?  I have no pain in my arms or jaw, just center of chest and middle of upper back.  This is the second time in two weeks.  It goes away after about one hour.  It is so bad it makes me double over in pain.  It's important to note that my back hurts as much as my chest - I'm not finding that in heart symptoms.
