Upper Back Pain Lungs

The human spine is a complicated structure with many different bones and ligaments. It is covered with several layers of muscles and tendons that are all connected, and all work together, to hold you upright and allow your daily activities.

All of these different tissues are filled with nerve endings, which can cause chronic back pain when something is wrong, and the list of possible problems that can cause chronic back pain is almost endless.

"completely unrelated to the lungs"

There are many possible causes of upper back pain, but the most common cause is muscle strain. Ligament and tendon strains and sprains may also occur in the upper back. Mechanical back pain or disc herniation is possible. Injuries to nerves and fractures of the bones will also cause pain. The list of possible problems, that is completely unrelated to the lungs, goes on and on.

Pain with Deep Breathing

There are also many possible causes of lung or breathing pain, which are not associated with your back or spine.

Among these would be a collapsed lung, or an infection of some type, such as pneumonia or an abscess.

You may also have pleuritis or pleurisy, an inflammation of the pleura that covers the lungs. Asthma and bronchitis can also cause pain with deep breathing.
