The left side of my chest, breast and shoulder hurts. Was it from my heavy purse?

In brief: Probably

You likely know this better than anybody, but if you had a heavy purse that required tension of those muscles, and now 1-2 days later you're achy in those areas, then you're probably right.
Backpacks can do that too. Shifting the weight from side to side and putting the purse down helps.
