nothing to worry about

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX

Welcome to HEALTHCARE MAGIC..

How was your day?

Hope this message finds you in good health.

I have gone through your query in detail and understand your concern.

it seems you have significantly strained one of nerve or a muscle in the rib cage region that is causing radiating pain in the breast,chest and back scapular region.

Another possibility, if these symptoms are accompanied by neck pain as well, and if neck movements aggravate the pain,the a possiblity of cervical disc prolapse should also be kept in mind.

I would suggest that you take adequate rest, apply a rib belt for support, take analgesic and muscle relaxant tablets , apply local gel with hot fomentation.
Avoid a pillow below neck .

If the symptoms do not improve after 3 days, get a chest and neck xray done to find out whats wrong

You should eventually get back to normal in coming few days.Nothing to worry about, as long as i am there to help you.     

I hope your question has been answered.

Feel free to consult me anytime for follow-up queries. Take care,God bless.
Wish you a healthy life : )

If you do not have any clarifications,you can close the discussion.
     
Kind Regards..
