It is possible that you are suffering from costo-chondritis (inflammation of the intercostal joint space between the ribs and sternum). You can take Naproxen 275 mg, two tablets, three times daily to alleviate the pain. If there is no improvement within 5 days, consult your doctor for an examination and possible x-rays or CT scan.
