In brief: Many things

Too many things to guess.
..You'd need to see a doctor. This could anything from a bruised rib or pulled muscle, to a kidney stone, gallbladder problem, or lung problem. More details may be helpful, but most pain in the chest (even chest wall) and abdomen should be evaluated by a doctor.
