From description it seems you might developed soft tissue injury with contuised or broken rib.You need an xray to rule out any bony injury.
Take rest, do hot fomatation, deep breathing exercises, take antiinflammatory drug like ibuprofen to reduce pain and inflammation.
Hope this will helps you.

Thanks for writing to us.
Since there is difficulty in breathing associated with pain, it seems that you might have injured some rib in addition to the muscle and soft tissue injury. Using a chest belt for support will help in reducing the pain.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
