Sharp pain throughout the day in rib cage lasting for few seconds. Cause of concern?

I have a sharp pain every hour or so throughout the course of the day; probably my high right rib cage, at my side, where the bra band would be. It s not extremely sore but catches your attention, it wouldn t pass without bring noticed, lasting only about 1 second every time. Is there any cause for concern regarding this

Thank for asking to HCM
I really understand your concern, this could be local muscular twitching, and this may go away without any treatment, I would advise to maintain your posture, the poor posture could aggravate this, you can use any local analgesic for this and the Diclofenac gel would give good result, have nice day.
