Can be neither: It can very much be muscles, bones or nerves in your chest wall. NSAIDS, unless contraindicated, would help, warm compresses too, besides resting the area and avoid lifting heavy objects and have a correct posture while sitting/driving, if no improvement or symptoms are severe and uncontrollable see your doctor for evaluation, best wishes
