Most likely a pulled muscle or nerve pinched. If you have other symptoms see a dr asap. Have you tried taking something like motrin or aleve?
This has happened to me more than once over the years. My Dr told me it was an involuntary muscle spasm. It really hurts though, doesn't it? I usually use a heating pad on it and it will go away. Or you can use ice if that works better for you. Hope this helps.
Hello Jenny. Ouch! When I have felt that it was intercostal pain, between the ribs. Lifting or carrying a child can do it.
However, if you also have a backache, short of breath, dizzy, take an aspirin and go to the hospital In case it is your heart.
If you are in high heat, drink lots of water and go someplace cool. No sweets or alcohol with high temps.
Just wanted to cover the bases. Hope this is just a pulled rib muscle. Karen
