Dear,

Thanks for staying online. I am posting my answer.

Well, pain on the right side of the chest is rarely caused by heart conditions.

No need to worry, it is not related with any serious issue.

Over exertion of the chest muscles can result in pain in your right side. The pain worsens with certain movements and is usually due to chest muscle tenderness.This can cause temporary chest pain in this region and can be the cause of your condition

Secondly inflammation of the pleura which can be occuring on an intermittent basis due to viral infections can cause this problem as well which would be evident on the basis of increasing pain in this region when you breathe.

Another cause can be problems with the digestive tract such as in the case of gallbladder problems or even the pancreas which can cause this pain but they would also present with symptoms related to the digestive tract as well such as diarrhea or acid reflux disease.

But i would think that this most likely cause is- overexertion or recurrent muscle spasms while exercising due to inadequate hydration which can lead to electrolyte imbalance and that in turn can cause the problem.

Keep yourself hydrated. Take healthy and well balance diet.

Take frequent breaks at time of using treadmill.

No need to worry, it is not related with any serious issue.

You can take OTC Tylenol occasionally.

Hope this helped
