On two occasions within the last six months I have had a moving pain around my ribcage and lung. It feels like bubble or an object causing a sharp pain and it moves around underneath the ribcage, travelling around the bottom of my ribcage/lungs and to my back (around the ribcage section still) if I move or try to feel it. I have had it once on the left and once on the right as two separate occasions (a good few months apart), but it was the same sensation. It started whilst lying down on both occasions. The pain subdues after 20-30 minutes, but while it is there it is very distressing.
It doesn't affect my breathing, I've not had any injuries that I can attribute it to, I have no other conditions, and take no regular medications.
