Sounds muscoluskel: What you describe sounds like an irritated or pulled muscle or bone connection. Costochondritis is from irritation of the cartilage and bone junction. Muscle strains can do this as well. Most get better slowly with time. But if it continues or gets worse, or you have other symptoms, be seen to check it out. If no reason to avoid them, meds such as tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen can help.

Get examined: It could just be muscle strain. Or could be intestinal condition, hernia etc. Give us feedback on the final dx.
