Does sound muscular: But neck, rib and even breast issues can cause the adjacent muscles to act up. Apply moist heat and avoid any movement that aggravates the pain, except try to gently stretch through the pain a couple of times a day. Take acetaminophen. Check for lumps or bumps. Get checked if not better in a couple of days or suddenly gets worse or any breathing difficulty. Good luck!
