In brief: You may have

costochondritis which is an inflammation of the cartilaginous connection between ribs and breastbone (sternum) which is likely causing this pain with specific movement.
Take ibuprofen 200-400 mg 2-3 times daily to help alleviate the pain. If it persists or other symptoms start appearing, or if the pain radiates up the jaw, into the left shoulder and/or left arm, please see a healthcare provider.
