You may have suffered from pulmonary contusion due to the force. You should ideally be getting rest and not strain. You ca apply pain killing gel on the chest plate area for relief. Also you can take short shallow frequent breaths to avoid long and painful breath. You can take over the counter pain killer as well under medical supervision for relief. Avoid pollution, smoke, dust, better to stay away from work which requires increased labour for a week.
