You might have pulled your muscle. One of your lats runsfrom your waste up to your shoulder and then connects with your neck muscle. Try stretching or go have a deep muscle massage. Or try taking a HOT bath with a lavander, chamomile bath salt. (Found at walgreens). Repeat any of these as needed until pain subsides. This may be from a strained intercostal muscle (muscle between your ribs) or a rib that is out of place. If when you take a deep breath an you are getting rib pain. This is likely from an out of place rib. Have your MD send you to PT after getting your cardiac status cleared.
