What is the Cause of sudden severe mid back pain?
The causes of sudden and severe mid back pain are many and varied. Some of the many things that can cause those symptoms are infections, rib and cartilage dysfunction/irritation, idiopathic (unknown cause) muscle spasms, and vertebral disc herniation, along with many other disease processes. The things to think about are 1) what were you doing when the pain started? 2) is this the first time it's ever happened or is it a recurrence? 3) is the pain related to your breathing patterns? 4) is the pain related to specific movements? Unfortunately there is no easy answer without some type of examination. If you are running a fever, feel faint, or have shortness of breath you need to see your medical doctor. If your pain is caused with certain movements, hurts when you breathe (rib pain), or if you feel that your pain is caused by some type of neuromusculoskeletal (nerve, muscle, and bone) problem, then you are probably better off finding a reputable chiropractor.

That is a difficult question to answer as the pain may not even be coming from the back but from the foot or ankle - radiating throughout the body and making the back ap…pear to be sore. It could be a nerve, a muscle, a disc which could have ruptured, bulged or herniated. You need to see a specialist if the pain is increasing and have tests done to eliminiate the pain. A good book to read is Pain Free by Peter Ecogscue - explains the muscoskeletal system and how we can help our bodies perform correctly, eliminating pain.

falling on your back and throwing it out causes severe pain if your immune system fails then your spinal cord will fail and you wont be able to feel pain at all … if you arent able to feel pain then you will never know if you are dying or supposedly getting hurt and that is the worst pain of all

I had the exact same thing happen to me. Only I coughed and before I knew it I was doubled over on the couch gasping for air. I could feel my lower right rear rib muscles cont…racting to the point that it was hard to breath. This lasted for several minutes and finally began to let up. It was still very sore and I could feel the muscle when I breathed. I put heating pad on it for about 30 45 mins and this helped tremendously. Try to use warm moist heat. You may want to go to the hospital, especially if it worsens.
There are many things that could cause pain. The first thing to do is to determine what the source of the pain is--is it osteopathic, is it circulatory, is it neural, is it mu…scular, or is it epidermal? If the pain is osteopathic, it could be caused by stress fractures in the vertebrae, something that needs immediate medical attention. If it is circulatory, you may have a circulatory problem, which needs medical attention, or you may have a bruise. If it is neural, it may simply be a pinched nerve. If it is muscular, it could be a strain or a pull, in which case, simply because of its location it may be prudent to have it examined by a practitioner. If it is epidermal, it should be very obvious what is causing the pain, as there would be a noticeable rash or abrasion. The most likely cause is either bad posture, as a result from non-ergonomic chairs or a bed that is not soft enough, or it could be stress-induced. In any scenario, the best you can do for it if it is nothing to worry about (that is, if it is not anything that resembles the problems I described above) is to simply have a good night's sleep, possibly on a softer mattress, and try to relax more.
Yes. Muscle spams, whether in the back or elsewhere, are a common issue with Fibromyalgia. Muscle relaxers, muscle taping and massage are all treatments that may help.
