Question Tight squeezing feeling in back

I keep having a tight squeezing feeling in my back. A few nights ago I had such a bad pain on my left side under my rib cage, I couldn't straigten up or take a deep breath. It felt like a spasm. I went to the er and they ran tests and did xrays and said they thought I had a kidney infection. I went home and then started vomiting so went back and was admitted. They didn't find anything and sent me home after a day and was told to follow up with my Dr. and take antibiotics. I get these tight squeezing feelings alot and have had stress tests and xrays but can't find the cause. I also get a tightness in my neck and shoulders. Does it sound like arthritis? And if so, what can I do about it? I would like to exercise but I get out of breath a lot. Does anyone use magnets for their back pain?
