In brief: Evaluate
You are describing pleuritic pain.
This could represent something serious and you should seek attention. Possibilities range from serious (pulmonary embolism -blood clot to lung, aortic dissection - tear in aorta, lung infection) to more benign condition such as musculoskeletal pain. Get evaluated if symptoms continue.
