You may have just pulled a muscle. The thoracic muscles can be pretty brutal to pull...with a lot of pain, especially when breathing like you mention.

Give it a couple of days, and I'm sure you'll be on the mend soon.

I agree with SC sounds like you have pulled a thoracic muscle which can take a while to heal.

I try not to worry about the future -- so I take each day just one anxiety attack at a time.
