As per your description,it appears to be due to musculoskeletal in origin most likely due to inflammation of joint of ribs with cartilage called costochondritis.In other cases it can be due to pinched nerve in the back spine from posture or degenerative changes in spine.
Other possible cause is pleuritis.
So you should try a humidifier in your room.
Also gentle massage with warm compresses can be tried.
You should see an Orthopedic doctor if there is no associated chest infection would be ruled out.
Take OTC Advil.
