Ribs: Although it is impossible to make a diagnosis without actually examining you or checking on x-ray studies, this may well be from a sprained or fractured rib. The chest tightness may well be from voluntary keeping your chest cage from inflating maximally to avoid the pain. If the pain has been present for over 1-2 weeks without any improvement, need to see your doctor.

Muscle spasm: Any abdominal pain related to movement, raises suspicion for a muscle spasm. However if this goes on, after eating in the future, then a GI work up is in order for acid reflux, peptic ulcer, gallbladder problems. Doubt this is anything life threatening, so stay calm, and try and antacid. May also try Ibuprofen or Aleve, I'd antacid does not help.
