Hello there....., your clinical symptoms are suggestive of intercostal muscular spasms.. Stretch the affected muscle, drink plenty of fluids, Use a warm towel or heating pad on tense or tight muscles.... Fluids help your muscles contract and relax and keep muscle cells hydrated and less irritable....Consult orthopedician for further advice....
