Stabing Pain In Rib (Both)

Patient

Q: So recently it occurred to me that every hour and then i get a sharp stabbing pain that doesn't really hurt to me i can live with it but... it happens to both ribs just under my man boobs and sometimes it happens as I breathe it usually happens when i drink gas, cough, blow my nose, stretch and when i inhale a very large breath i don't think its anything serious because most symptoms leading to something serious usually are nausea, vomiting and coughing up blood and i dont have those symptoms, but i am coughing slightly at the moment (not blood) but i was standing in the cold this morning so... please suggest what it could be to me and if i need to go to the doctor immediately i am 14 male from australia weigh 75kgs average weigh and a little unfit and i have also been doing some heavy lifting lately but i honestly dont think its my muscles, i have been bugging my mum to take me to the bloody doctor for 2 days now, she just says take a panadol... but the stab can hurt but it lasts for about 0.89 seconds less than a second so post some suggestions please.. and i will go to the doctor i hope...
