Rib dislocation: Could be a rib dislocation or possibly costochondritis (inflammation of where the ribs and cartilage meet). I would recommend seeing a osteopathic physician to see if they can correct the rib issue. Many times they can place the rib back in proper alignment. Make sure you see a do that does manipulation as their main practice, they are the best.

Maybe: It depends on how long it has been there. Does the pain go down your leg? I would start with rest and moist heat. If it persists more than a few days see your pcp. Nsaids and muscle relaxers may be all that you need.

Many things: This problem mandates a real-time (face-to-face) meeting with a doctor. A history has to be taken along with a examination as well as labs and other tests. Only after all this will your doctor be in a position to tell you what's wrong and what needs to be done to help you.
