I am having the same problem. It started for me about 4 days ago too. I am not able to sit or even lay down without pain. I am having bad back pains that even using a heating pad don't help. It hurts to breathe unless I press where the pain is, then it just hurts because I'm pressing. I am overweight so don't know if I should go to the doctor's cause I'm afraid that they'll just say the pain is because I'm overweight. I haven't been able to sleep that much because the pain is constant.
