Morning back pain in spine behind lungs, breathing temp affected.

I'm a 34 female that has been having morning back pain for years now and getting gradually worse. I wake up every morning from back pain in the center of my spine right behind my lungs. If I breathe and expand my lungs it hurts my lungs until I roll over on my stomach and curl my body up into a ball to stretch out my spine and then seconds later I can breathe normally again and my back pain slowly diminishes within the hour and then I'm usually back pain free for the rest of the day. It almost feels like my spine changes shape as I sleep and puts pressure on my lungs. When I push on my spine in the morning I can't feel the sore spot so I know Its on the other side of my spine. Does this sound like AS or kyphosis to you guys ? I went to my doctor for a MRI but she's sending me for an X-ray instead and recommended Physio. I was diagnosed with mild scoliosis as a child, and when I went to see an orthopaedic surgeon with X-rays 6 years ago he only saw mild curvature as well.

This probably isn't related to my back pain but Ive been having occasional muscle spasms and tremors in my right arm and leg, a weak feeling in my arms and legs , and A sore neck muscle on my right side on and off for the last past year. I saw a movement disorder specialist and he didn't know what was causing it not ms or parkinsons, I'm wondering if it could be back related somehow ? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated thanks
