In brief: R-side chest pain

Since cardiac chest pain is usually in the middle of the chest and feels like a pressure, right sided pain is probably not heart pain.
The most common causes of pain on this side of the chest are muscle sprains, particularly the pectoral muscles. Other causes include pleurisy (lung inflammation), or liver or gallbladder inflammation. If you have wheezing, the lung tightness can strain rib muscles.
