1 doctor agrees

In brief: Ice or heat,rest

pain that occurs with breathing in can be Pleurisy, where lining of lungs are inflamed & breathing in is painful.
Also pain could be due to muscle spasm, paraspinal muscles along the spine can spasm, along with muscles left side of neck, causing pain. Rest & take it easy, try OTC aleve (naproxen) 1 tablet with food twice daily for a few days, see MD if no better. Physical Therapy helpful if muscle spasm
