Pain in the chest with deep inhalation effort is usually a result of Pleurisy, a condition in which the pleural membrane (an elastic covering over the lungs) becomes inflamed, the usual cause is a viral illness.

Some times, the pain can arise from a sore muscle in the chest wall. The inflamed muscle is spastic and a stretch due to deep inhalation give rise to pain.

The best treatment for this is to take anti-inflammatory medications (like motrin or aleve) for next few days and see how you respond to it. Ideally this should settle down with in few days, but if it does not or if becomes associated with fever or productive cough, then it will be a clear indication to have this examined by your doctor for further evaluation.
