User avatar It could possibly be a strain, since it hurts more when you are in certain positions, talk to your doctor about taking some antiinflammatories.

From what you describe, it can be as simple as a rib subluxation. Try visiting a chiropractor who can easily adjust the rib and whatever else you may have going on in your thoracic spine. An appointment should be cheap (probably covered by your insurance), and the chiropractor is trained to tell if it is something more serious or just as simple subluxation.
