As you have said you do exercises regularly , then feeling of lutter at right lung base could be muscle spasm or fasiculations.

Since your ecg , aio seems to be normal , then muscle relaxant can solve your problem, if it stays more then x-ray is recommended.

Chest and abdominal muscles are the biggest in the body , and they do present like you have said when there is a spasm.

Hope this helps.

Take care
