Hi !

Thank you for your query.

I think you need to get an xray chest done to see if there is any hairline fracture that is causing it .

I advise , you should see a orthopaedician for this problem and get yourself evaluated.

Hope you are satisfied with the answer.

If you have any further queries feel free to ask.

Wish you good health.

Take care.
