About 9 days ago I was out riding a dirtbike in the mountains. It was very strenuous, The next morning I noticed
the right side of my chest hurt. Right under my right breast. If I push on the area it is sensitive and when I breath
deep it hurts, and if I get up from lying down it hurts. I am able to move around but it's a constant aching. I was told
if I pulled a chest muscle it can take up to 6 weeks to heal. I was hoping that someone could tell me if it sounds like
I might have pulled a chest muscle, and if so how long I might be looking at before the pain goes away.
