What causes sharp middle back pain while breathing in?
If it is a burning sensation in your back while you are breathing in, then it is most likely pnemonia, get to the doctor, most probably treatable by antibiotics.

Could be a bladder infection. You need to have it checked out.
Kidney stones are the most likely cause. You need an ex-ray to determine this. Go see a urologist.
If the pain is stabbing and intense, and radiates, it's consistent with nerve compression pain caused by either a bulging disk or a disk that's fully herniated. If the p…ain goes down the back of your legs, it's the Sciatic nerve being compressed by the L4/5 or L5/S1 disk; if the pain stops at the inside of the knee, it's the L3/4 disk nerve being compressed. Regardless, the treatment is the same - get off your feet, and lie down. Sitting is out as it also puts pressure on the lower spine. If it lasts in its intensity for more than 3 days, you'll probably require an Epidural or Facet Injection (local or targeted steroid injections to reduce inflammation) so that the disk can retract and heal. However, be aware that for most, the shots and resulting pain are as bad or worse than the pain it's intended to deal with. In the years when I still got benefit from shots, it generally took 2 or 3 days for the pain from the injection to subside. Muscle spasms caused by the pain of the nerve compression adds to the problem, and is the reason muscle relaxers are commonly prescribed. As the muscles / tendons contract during pain spasms, the area around the nerve becomes tighter, increasing the nerve compression and subsequently the pain. It's a vicious cycle. As I said, pain lasting in intensity for more than 2 or 3 days needs to be checked by a doctor. The severity of the pain also can give you an indication of just how bad the problem is - if you can walk without support (cane, etc.) then it's not that bad, but still should be checked anyway. If you can walk but need support, then it's more serious and you should hve it checked immediately.
Hello there are several reasons for this but number one is heart problems. But wait you can also have a asthma attack and have pain in the chest to , and last but not least a …anxiety attack will also cause pain in the chest. But do remember that heart pain will also have pain down one arm are the other. Another possible reason is straining of the chest muscles after lifting something heavy. The reattachment of the muscles can cause great pain on your chest near your heart.
Answer Abscesses of the teeth occur because the tooth has become non vital, ie it has died from either a traumatic accident or decay or a leaky filling with… decay underneath. This causes dead material in the tooth to leak out throught the apical foramen (the point of the tooth that sits in the bone and is where the blood vessels and nerves of the pulp enter and leave the tooth). This causes inflammation within the boney socket that holds the tooth and leads to a collection of pus. This pus collects in the socket and causes formation of an abscess. If the infected material is not removed, it has to spread somewhere so it moves along the easiest path it can find. In some cases it moves along the tissue layers of the face amd into the space below the chin and jaw. This is known as cellulitis. When the infection spreads into the floor of the mouth compromising the airway and this can lead to trouble breathing and is a serious life threatening risk. As for back pain I dont know but you need to get this checked out ASAP.
Answer Some possibilities - although not exhaustive - are a lung infection, broken bones, and a subluxation in your back...a chiropractor can advise on and fix the latt…er. Damage to the long thorasic nerve can cause this kind of pain as well. It affects the muscle that is responsible for keeping your shoulder blade in place.. This can cause the other muscles around it to go into spasm from compensating. The injury can happen by harming any part of the nerve which runs from the base of your neck/skull and deep into the back. The pain is not usually present where the injury occurs. To see if this is what is wrong, stand about an arms length from a wall and put both hands on the wall. Lean in to the wall like a push up, very slowly. Try to look in a mirror id possible, or have someone else feel both shoulder blades as you go into the wall and slowly push back out. If one blade seems to be winged out more than the other at any point in this, then it is very likely that this is your problem. See a doc and ask for a neurological check up. I suffer from this injury, it very often feels like a lung issue but is not actually related to the respiritory system.
What could be causing sharp stabbing pain under right shoulder blade when you move your arm or head and when you take a deep breath?
The cause of pain in these areas, could be a pulled muscle or a bruised rib. However, if it is a cause for concern then it is best to see a doctor.
This even happens when I am sitting or laying down.
The main cause of pain in the chest, arms, and back while coughing is muscle fatigue. These muscles are not typically used and will quickly tire through coughing.

kneeling on something sharp
I had that, so bad that I couldn't sleep or breath right. I think, but am not 100% sure, it was a pulled muscle in the chest for torn muscle, and when the lung inhales it push…es against it and causes pain. I think it could be from working out, over stressing the muscle? I took muscle relaxers at night before bed, plus A535 muscle rub on the painful spot, and it is almost completely gone after 1 week.
