sudden mid back pain

Hi all,
So I was just standing around doing absulutely nothing outside of normal walking and sitting down and getting up every 20 minutes when suddenly I felt an excruciating pain centralised at my mid back. Like a sudden muscle spasm. It was a chilly 8 degrees that day too and I wasn't covered up all that well so muscle spams was my first guess. I could not properly walk or turn to my side or lean forward or backwards from the pain so I sat down for an hour for it to go away. After that did nothing to help the pain I visited a hospital on the account of possible pneumothorax (had the history about 6 years ago). They found nothing and today has been my 3rd day with this constant pain. I can completely lean forward and backwards no problem. However anything involving me turning to my sides and also a deep breath increases the pain to a perfect 10/10. I also did the hands crossed on the opposite shoulder and well failed that test since I could not turn. I was told by the doctor that it could possibly be the case of vertebrae/disk misalignment.
Can someone please tell me how accurate this is.
I am a 20yo and my job requires me to be seated in front of a computer for upwards of 8+hrs a day so admittedly don't have a really good posture. Pain is around my mid back region exactly equally to the sides of the spine. Turning to one side causes major pain to the muscles of the opposite side of the spine. Getting up from a laying down position in bed also increases the pain.
Thanks a lot
