Hi, the strong possibility in your case would be musculoskeletal pain, insidious rib fracture which occurs due to repeated and unaccustomed activity involving upper trunk or arms can lead to such pain. Respiratory causes like pleurisy can also be suspected but it is ruled out in your case.

For musculoskeletal pain or insidious rib fracture rest to the upper trunk by limiting the activity and painkillers will be suffice. Do not worry; pain will reduce in a week, keep taking shallow breaths. Avoid sleeping on affected side. I suggest you to consult physician.  Take care and regards.
