Our expert says:
Your symptoms can be due to a viral chest infection, causing pain and inflammation. If possible, consult your doctor for a chest x-ray. In the interim you can use a anti-inflammatory, like Ibuprofen (available over the counter) to alleviate the pain. Strict bedrest is advised for a couple of days.
