This sounds exactly like a bone that has gone out to me. That can put the muscles in unfamilar positions which really pulls them bad. My guess is one of the upper ribs, where they join to the spine. Or the shoulder blade.
I have found that, since becoming pregnant, I am not holding adjustments and my bones have been going out like crazy. Muscles are tight too...or just not holding right. When bones go out and don't go right back in, other stuff goes out to compensate and the pain goes away, but now you have two or more misalignments. I find it takes 3 days from sharp new pain to compensation. I also find that if I can get in to be adjusted before the compensation I am more likely to hold the adjustment.
Too bad I can't afford to see my chiropractor twice a week!
The muscles are always helped for me by an epson salt bath. I hadn't been taking baths since ovulating, just in case. I took one the other day though, just couldn't stand it anymore. But I used my digital therm and made sure the water stayed no hotter than body temp and also checked my body temp.
You may find ice helps or that heat helps. You ahve to experiment and it may vary too.
