Ok thanks for you reply.
The risk of heart disease is extremely low.
The pain is more right side predominant.
This can be due to the acid reflux disease commonly from esophageal spasms.
Another possibility can be due to the costochondritis.
Costchondriis is a condition due to the inflammation of the ribcage cartilage can cause pain on stretching of the affected ribs.
You should see your doctor for a clinical evaluation as well.
