Sudden intense back/rib cage pain?

Medical question: I'm a 17 year old male and last night my rib cage and upper back began to hurt like never before. I thought a night of sleep of help, but it hasn't. Should I be worried?
By 'hurt' I mean my movement is extremely constricted. turning my body to the left or right causes intense pain in my back, bending down or up causes the same pain in my chest and back. I have never had pains like this before and they started almost abruptly last night.
Should I see a doctor? Is this normal at all?
Also, I was dancing at a party last night, if that helps. Thank you, DoctorFilter.
