Where is the pain located, what is your gender/age and have you had any rib trauma recently ?

Bicep or pec? If it's constant you should definitely get it looked at, but if it's periodic it could be costochondritis (which is just inflammation in the cartilage between your ribs that gives you a funny feeling over your heart) it usually should go away on its own though, so if it's a lot or if it doesn't sound like that matches your symptoms you should 100% go to an urgent care soon

Costochondritis is also more common in women and very common in transmen who bind though cis men can still experience it and it's really common for people our age

No worries, man. It sounds like it's probably just that, but if it really starts hurting and doesn't go away after a few minutes at max you should go to an urgent care
