Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.

I am sorry for your symptoms.
The pain in this part of chest which worsens with breathing can be due to a few factors.
Musculoskeletal causes like muscle strain, costochondritis can be the factors.
Costochondritis is inflammation of cartilage joint of ribs.
Other possibility can be pleurisy or inflammation of the lungs or an infection, clot.
But you are not having any cough, fever or any other symptom.
Heart pain can be worse on exertion but is unlikely to be affected by breathing.
Thoracic outlet syndrome or nerve impingement is often associated with numbness, tingling.
Though muscle strain is a likely cause but atypical presentation of other factors needs to be ruled out.
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
Imaging studies like X ray or CT scan can be necessary.
You can apply heat or warm compress now.
Pain medicines like motrin or tylenol can be taken.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your early recovery.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
