In brief: Pleural pain

If the pain is accompanied by shortness of breath sufficient to slow down your ability to run, or is accompanied by palpitations or a crushing feeling in the chest, get seen to rule out pneumothorax, pleural infection, etc.
Most often the type of pain you describe is due to a fold in the pleura, the lining of the inside of your chest wall. This is usually trivial and self-cures.
