Hi thanks for contacting health care magic...

First avoid taking stress about your condition....

If your ribs are tender to touch with pain then it could be costochondritis....
Take simple ibuprofen like drug for it...
Avoid bad sleep posture....
Strenous activity avoided ...
Hot pads can be applied....
Avoid movement that causing pain....

It is better to consult physician for your condition and get examined with auscultation also ....
If rales or rhonchi heard further investigation needs like chest x ray and spirometry....

Take care.
