In brief: Rib

The most common reason for this is pain from a rib.
The ribs usually move with every breath and chest motion. If the rib isn't moving properly or is pulled out of position this can cause the pain you describe. If it is a sharp pain made worse with breathing deep it is ok to wait and see if it goes away. If it lasts more than a day or two see a doctor
