Thanks for the query
If you are having difficulty in breathing then you should get done an x-ray chest as soon as possible to rule out any XXXXXXX injury like ribs fracture or other chest injury.usually such kind of pain can longlast even more then a week.visit to a orthopedician for better management and you should start pain killer with antacid.
Investigation u may required
1)X-Ray chest
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
