I'm no doctor, but anytime there is painful swelling in the armpit area, I am inclined to think of the lymph nodes being swollen and irritated.
You could have an underlying infection. Unfortunately, a blood test is the only way to determine what it is.
You may have irritated them when you punched the ceiling. The fact that it continues and you have some colored streaks on your ribs doesn't square
with your account of how you became injured, so there has to be something else going on.
Either bite the bullet and see a doc, or use an herbal antimicrobial such as Samento (available on Amazon) and see if it gets better.
Personally, I would march into the ER and demand a few blood tests. Yes you will get some bills later on, but I don't think this is anything to play
around with. JMHO.
Get better soon!
