Hit on the arm, 2 days later have chest pain, difficulty in deep breathing and certain movements. What could this be?

I was in a bus and I trip and I hit the arm rest as it was in an erect position. It was very hard hit. It was not a big deal then, two days later I felt pain in the chest , and the four days later was a little worst. one full week later, after playing some football (soccer) the pain became worst. It hurts to breath deep and on certain movements. What could this be...?

Hi thanks for the query,
from the complaints you had described it is best to get an xray first of the chest to rule out any fracture of the ribs, or it is a blunt injury of chest kindly consult local orthopedician.
