Pain in rib cage when breathing or laughing. Normal urine test and EKG. No cough or fever

I have pain that started in my lower right rib cage ( stabbing pain) it hurt to breathe and laugh. I went to the dr and he did a ekg and urine test which came back normal. That evening I spiked a 102 degree temp which broke with rest and IBU. Today my left lower chest and left lower back hurt, still when I breathe or laugh. I have no cough and have no fever but am very uncomfortable and in pain.
