Pain in the chest and shoulders after a fall. Pain under the breast when taking deep breath, coughing and sneezing. X-ray normal

54 years old female - was walking dog 10 days ago and dog (big puppy) pulled me too hard one way and I fell hard on my right side with my right arm extended (holding onto the leash). In other words - nothing broke my fall - I went straight down. First night my shoulder and right breast really hurt. Over next few days both got much better. Now I just have pain under right breast - mostly when I take a deep breath, cough, sneeze etc. Also when I bend over. Usually doesn t hurt if I m not moving. Had chest xray of ribs yesterday at urgent care - was negative. What else could be causing this pain?

From history it seems that due to hard hit on ground there might be heavy strain of muscles giving rise this problem.
As there is no fracture, nothing to worry.
Go for hot fomentation and apply analgesic cream locally.
Take NSAID tablet for pain as and when required.
Gradually pain will be subsided.
Ok and take care.
