Had soreness in ribs, twitching pain. Had spicy food. Used muscle relaxers. Help?

A few nites ago I over indulged in pinot greigio wine and an xtremely spicy stew. The same day I helped a neighbor break out some concrete with a cold chisel and 4lb hammer.
Following that early 4a.m., I had a soreness, and twitching pain everytime I moved or bent over. Its been 3 days now, and all I've done is 2 muscle relaxers, advil and rest.
Everything feels a lot better, but soreness of the lowered right ribs moving and twitching is still there.
Any suggestions?

According to your history most likely you have injured your ribs.

I advise you to take x ray chest ,take analgesic ,rest and clinical examination from surgeon.

Take muscle relaxant with antacid, take rest , hot fomentation.
