Thanks for posting your query.
It most probably seems like a chest wall.
Take rest. This will help in recovery over next 2-3 weeks. You can also use a chest belt of appropriate size for relief.
You can take a good cough syrup and do steam inhalations to avoid pain.
Hot fomentation on the pain site and application of anti inflammatory gels will also help.
Consult your physician regarding the same and analgesics like paracetamol and diclofenac can be taken after his advise.
Get well soon.
I hope this answers your query.
