i'm also a heavy smoker, if that counts as anything, and have been under a lot of stress.
Sounds like muscle pain, and inflammation. Given your age, the fact that it's on the right side, the kind of pain, the fact that it presents when you move, etc., I think you shouldn't worry. Take some Advil (ibuprofen) or Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid/asa), and see if that helps.
