Brief Answer:
History is too brief.

Detailed Answer:

History is too brief to give a valuable opinion. It would be helpful it you provide some more information like duration and onset of the symptoms. Reports of any investigation if done.

But your recently medical history of bronchitis may be significant here. Extensive cough and chest infection may be causing pain in your rib cage.

You may need Chest X XXXXXXX / CT scan of the chest to rule out pleural effusion.

Hope the answer helps you. Please let me know if there are any clarifications.
