In brief: Muscle/rib

Chances are if you poke something on or right under your chest and it hurts (or feels better) - you're poking a muscle, rib, or part of the cartilage in the ribs.
Try some ibuprofen, warm packs, and avoid poking. We worry about left side of the chest because that's where the heart is... So it's always good to get examined by a doctor with weird pains in the chest.
