It's worse in the morning- I though it waS muscle related at first due to bad posture When sleeping- I don't know

Thanks for the details

It can be a muscular pain

Or it can be pinched nerve

Since it has persisted for about three months so you must have it examined by the doctor

You can use Nurofen for pain relief till you visit the doctor

But it does not look like a pain originating from the heart in my opinion

You may need an X-ray and ECG to be absolutely sure it is nothing concerning

Please do let me know if you have any other question
