Thanks for posting the query on XXXXXXX After going through the query, I would like to comment the following:

1. You seem to be having right sided back pain since 4 weeks.

2. You can visit a pulmonologist and get yourself clinically evaluated and also get a chest xray done.

3. If clinical examination and xray is normal , then it is in all probability muscular. You can take analgesics in consultation with your doctor.

4. If still no relief then an orhtopedic examination with evaluation like MRI may be required.

I hope I have answered your query. I will be glad to answer follow up queries if any.
Please accept my answer if you have no follow up queries.
