Muscle strain: Excessive strain of pectoralis major or minor muscles could cause these symptoms. Did you do some heavy lifting or pulling? Use heat & rest, & if symptoms worsen or continue see osteopath for diagnosis & physical therapist for treatment. You didn't reference a cough or shortness of breath. These would be symptoms of more serious problems. Absent neck pain, a pinched neck nerve is remote.
