This symptom is classical of pleural inflammation. The pain is usually sharp and stabbing often catches the breath when taken deeply. Most of the cases of pleural inflammation are non specific viral. Take Indomethacin 25mg thrice daily after food if not contra indicated along with an antacid for 5 days.
An x ray help. If you are having fever of any grade, then please get a thorough consultant.
