Hi Tina, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
May be it is Costochondritis which is the Inflammation of the of the ribs' junction to the breastbone. You may want to get yourself examined by a Orthopedist to rule out the exact cause as you will need medications. Apply heat pads regularly and do not sleep on this side of your Body.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.
