Hi.I would suggest ruling out thrombophlebitis,and localised muscle tear/damage .A visit to the doctor may help,he can examine you and rule out any local infections and lymphadenopathy around the armpit.The strain or tear will take some time,Rest,Ice pack applied for 15 minutes every 2-3 hours will help till you cam see your doctor.
