something cause the muscle between your ribs to go into spasm, it will feel like you broke a rib. pain get worst with movement and deep breathing. use a heat pad on the painful area and take ibuprofen600-800 mg after eating hopefully that will ease it up if not you might to see your PCP for more evaluation and possible more medicine
