The pain can be of a rib fracture if you've had a fall or trauma. Otherwise as you said that the investigations were fine it can be a musculoskeletal pain but that shouldn't be so sharp.
Pleurisy also can cause such a pain but the Xray should have given us some clue however a CT scan chest would be more better to look at.
Lastly it can be herpes that may recur after the pain for 3-4 days
