This could be a nerve pain ( irritation of nerve root in the chest area) or a nerve of the ribs or an inflammation in the muscle (Bornholm disease). You need to have a chest x/ray to exclude lung problems, and an examination by a doctor to try and pinpoint the cause, so that it can be treated with anti-inflammatories or cortisone injection.
