You need to get an EKG and x-rays to check the ribs and rule out any heart problems. Irritation of the ribs, the joints etc can cause this pain... it doesn't have to be related to the heart, but you still must rule out heart involvement with an EKG
 
I have been coughing over a month my left rib has been hurting i went to 2 doctors xrays showed nothing i popped something in my rib today and it hurts worse
It can be a hairline fracture in the rib which can be missed on x ray. I would suggest you to take Brufen and should not lie down on affected side. Try to cure your cough as well because it is not going to allow ribs to heal.

Hello! Broken ribs give plenty of pain. Its because the chest can not be immobilized. Good medicines for broken ribs are Diclophenac 50 mg twice a day and Tramadol 100 mg once a day. You should also have chest X-ray about 7 days after the accident. Regards.
