Follow : Follow up with your doctor. You should request a chest x-ray. In addition other studies may be necessary after a more detailed history and physical are obtained. Lastly, take ibuprofen; you may be dealing with cotcochondritis, which is inflammation between the ribs that can present as chest pain. Good luck.
