I pulled a muscle from my armpit through the area under my collar bone. It hurts to take a deep breathe. What should I do?

In brief: Sure it is muscle?

Generally, muscle strains heal with time, rest and anti-inflammatories.
Warm compresses may help as well. If this doesnt get better in a week or so, chest xrays may be needed to be sure you haven't cracked a rib.
