Likely Muscular: Pain with motion is likely musculoskeletal. If it doesn't resolve or you have other symptoms see your doctor. All the best.

See your physician: Pain in the chest on bending over may be due to some strained muscle in the chest wall. But there are so many different causes that a physician would want to ask you specific questions, and then examen you, before making a diagnosis. As always don't try to diagnose yourself on the internet. If you are experiencing a new or unusual pain seek medical advice.

What can be causing pain in left part of my chest when I breathe in?

Chest wall: Pain in the chest only on inspiration is usually a minor problem in the chest wall. The pleura (chest wall lining) on the inner surface beneath the ribs (you've seen this on spare ribs) may crinkle, causing a stabbing pain. Rib-cartilage joints may become inflamed "for no reason". If the pain becomes persistant, severe, or continuous, get to a physician.

Pain in left side near ribs and hurts to move?

Muscle Pain: If this pain is reproducable with movement, then it is most likely muscle-related. The left flank is a strange place for a muscle strain, though. If you've been chopping wood or moving furniture, then i could understand some under-used muscles now being painful. Try some local heat and advil (ibuprofen) to see if those help.

ER/UC: get examined. Never ignore left sided chest pain. The examination will reassure you. Since the pain is intermittent, it is probably chest wall spasm, but be safe and logical- go to the ER and get checked or at your local UC clinic.
