Dear Sir,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that it seems to be a muscular pain as you are giving the history , since their is no history of trauma any fracture rib is ruked out , no cough or fever so pleurisy is also ruled out . I think nothing much is required at this time .

You can take paracetamol tablet if required for pain relief , but if any other symptom appears then further evaluation will be necessary.

Take care.
