As with anything else, if it persists, becomes very severe, or you develop shortness of breath, see your physician. ...Read more

It will take time to resolve but should get better. If not, get checked for rare causes. ...Read more

For a deep or strenuous breath, you also engage accessory muscles, including musles in the neck that "pull up" on your rib cage to help get more air in. If those muscles are sore, or if there is some other pain, inflammation, or irritation in the neck, then a deep breath can lead to pain in that area. ...Read more
