In brief: Pleurisy
Most likely you have inflammation of the pleura which covers the lung.
Other possibilities include pneumonia, asthma, as well as a heart attack. Would see your physician for diagnosis.

Inflammation of the rib-cage can also cause these symptoms. I suggest seeing your healthcare professional to determine cause of your pain.
