Thank you asking HCM
I have gone through your query.Your problem is most likely costochondritis.Pain while palpation on the rib area is characteristic.Anyhow it is better to rule out other cause by auscultating your chest as you are having asthma.ECG and Chest x ray should be taken if needed also.For costochondritis i treat my patients with anti inflammatory gels of diclofenac or nimusulide for local application.Hope this may help you.
Let me know if you have any further query.
