In brief: Chest pain
Many of the muscles in the intercostal spaces (between ribs) attach both to the rib cage/sternum (front) as well as the spine (back).
Inflammation/pain at either site (front or back) can therefore affect the opposing side.

In brief: See a doctor
I cannot really tell why you have these pains.
You really should see a doctor and have a good examination and medical evaluation.
