Upper back ache and chest pains are worrisome at any age, as the feeling of “a ton of bricks”.  These symptoms could indicate lung disease, for example pneumonia or a blood clot to the lung (shortness of breath and pain might be pleurisy) or disease of the heart or large blood vessels that fill or drain the heart.  I regret the delay in answering your question but, if any of your symptoms persist when you receive this response, I strongly suggest that you seek help from your doctor or the nearest medical facility (ER or Urgent Care).

Good luck
