Hello,

As per your history, it may be due to muscle sprain.

For that you can take tablet acetaminophen. Apply diclofenac gel or ointment locally. Heating pads will also help.

In case of not getting relief you may require chest X Ray after consultation.

Take proper rest. Avoid strenuous activity

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
