Pain in ribs

Patient : I have been experiencing pain in my right rib cage that is not coming from underneath my ribs. It is tender to lightly push on my ribs. It doesn't seem to affect my breathing cause I can still do 30 minutes on my elliptical but it does hurt when I sneeze or cough. I have not had any injury recently but I did have the hiemlick done on my about 2 weeks ago. But this did not start hurting until this past Monday morning. I take ibuprofen for the pain when it is bad. It seems to hurt worse in the mornings upon rising. It almost feels like a stitch you get in your side while running but I have it all the time.
