I'm 25 years old and in good shape, exercising daily.

I was visiting my primary care clinic for a routine check-up, and sitting there talking with my doctor when all of a sudden I began having an aching/burning pain in my lower-middle back, radiating upwards..then began getting chills, sweating, became light-headed, and my face turned white!! At this point my doctor asked me "are you alright?", and i said no i feel like i'm going to pass out. I felt a bit nauseated as if i might vomit as well. She opened the door to let some air in and put the trash can in front of me. After about 5 minutes I felt better.

They took vital signs, my temperature was 99.8, all else was normal. They took a blood sugar test, it was good--87. After the vital signs were taken, the back pain started again, but I never got any of the other symptoms (pale face, chills, sweating, light-headedness) again. My back continued to ache for about 20 minutes after I left the clinic, but stopped soon after I ate something.

I've never had ANYTHING like this happen, never even passed out before.
What could this have been??? Is it likely to come back?
