That sounds like a problem I have called Costochondritis. It's inflammation of the connective tissues of the ribcage. It can hurt like the dickens, but it's a fairly benign thing. I take the NSAID Aleve when it flares up.

I was thinking pleurisy, but costochondritis is also a good possibility. I haven't had the joy of experiencing that, so it doesn't always come to mind. I'm sorry you are so familiar with it, Rob.
