Inflammation: Most likely you have a condition called costochondritis. This is due to poor blood flow to the cartilage of the lower ribs. Correct your posture and you will get better. In the mean time, use some ice packs or hot packs and some anti-inflammatories as you are allowed and you should be better. If not, see your pcp.
