Any one of these could be examples for this type of pain, falling down and injuring yourself, a blow to one of the body parts affected, excessive excercise to the upper body or possibly even an infection in the lung such as pneumonia. If persistent, notify physician.

My first two thoughts were either a pinched nerve or you may need your vertebrae adjusted by a chiropractor. Getting x-rays would be a good start.
