Maybe, maybe not...: Some irritation to a muscle, nerve, or part of a nerve that goes to certain muscle fibers may cause those fibers to twitch. Such twitching is usually for a few hours or a day, and only once in a while. In those cases, doctors and patients usually don't spend time looking for a cause. If symptoms have been there a whole week, or are recurrent, a primary doctor or a neurologist can evaluate.

Yes: A pulled muscle may hurt with breathing, but many other conditions also hurt with deep breathing such as pneumonia, blood clots, or pneumothorax. This is a scenario where the history really matters. If you were moving furniture or lifting heavy objects, this may very well be a pulled muscle. But if not, consider other possible diagnoses.
