I had this exact same issue a few months ago and went to the ER. Of course it was benign -- the doctor thought it was likely pleurisy (benign inflammation of the lining around the lungs), which can cause sharp, intermittent pains in the rib cage area, especially when you breathe. It cleared up in a day or so. Then I got the bill in the mail for $700.... :-(  Health anxiety is expensive.
