In brief: Rib cage

If the discomfort is one one side, it could come from an injury or pinching of the intercostal nerves or muscles which run between two ribs.
The pain is usually sharp,shooting, and fleeting and is very aggravated by a deep breath. If there is associated cough,or fever, pleurisy or lung infection is also a possibility. See your physician as needed.
