Thank you for the additional information.

Causes of the symptoms you are experiencing include: a muscle sprain, popped rib, pneumonia, reflux, a variant of a migraine, aneurysm (emergent, but less likely cause). I do recommend you see your doctor as soon as possible regarding this to have a proper physical exam and testing.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to ask.
