Sharp, stabbing pain in upper back, left side only

Sharp, stabbing pain in upper back, left side only. Bending forward or backward even slightly as well as taking a deep breath is excruciating.

Any type of test so far? What's your Doctor think?

I am having the same pain.  Went to the Dr. today and he quickly diagnosed pleurisy and gave me anti-inflammatory med.  He said that after the first dose, I should start to feel better, but I've taken 2 and it hasn't helped at all.  In reading about pleurisy, I am skeptical that this is the problem.
