    My first thought is costochondritis but it generally stays for a week or more. I recently read an article about how is a rib can pop out place and then pinches a nerve. From the article I was reading it can pop out and back in all day long. Which would explain the pain coming and going. get suggested seeing a chiropractor to have the rib put back in place. well that's my two cents worth, good luck on finding out what's going on.
