Hi Jeffy, Main questions: Are there any other symptom along w/the sharp pain (dizziness, shortness of breath, weakness)? Is the pain reproduceable on exertion? If the answers to the first, but especially the second, are "No." Then, you've nothing to worry about. Internal bits sometimes get pinched by ribs, especially by young ones. Your pulse can race for little or no reason, seemingly. Good Luck.
