Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.

You did not mention the right side of which part of the body. Abdomen or thorax. In every case, the muscular pain would be aggravated by movements and it should subside after taking nonsteroid painkillers such as Tylenol or Ibuprofen.

Otherwise, it may not be muscular, but it may be a pinched nerve or inflammatory process. I suggest to rest and take Ibuprofen 2x400mg after some food. If pain worsens or additional symptoms occur such as fever, cough or vomiting, you should see a doctor and so some further tests.

Wish you good health.
