Brief Answer:
Not possible

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history and understood your concerns.
No, it is not possible to have a hernia in the upper wall of the chest. This is a very very rare thing to occur and usually comes after some chest injury of lung and pleura infection.
Your history is more suggestive of costochondritis as the the pain comes across chest to the armpits and passes after 5-8 minutes, aggravated by bending as occurred in the morning.
I would advise you the following in such a situation:
Get a clinical evaluation, examination and relevant investigations like X-ray chest to find the actual cause so that a proper management can be done.

I hope this answers your query.
Please feel free to ask for further relevant queries if you feel that there is a gap of communication.

With Regards.
