Ribs look strange / pain / uncomfortable....

Hello.
For about a year or so, maybe less, I have had a little trouble with my ribs.
I reguarly get sharp stabbing pains underneath my ribs, in my stomach and the very center of my chest. My stomach will also become very tight, but not painfully tight.
Whenever I lay on my side, my ribs make me feel really uncomfortable and I have to move. Or even when I sit leaning forward, I feel extremely uncomfortable. I often feel quite sick after the stabbing pains.

I looked in the mirror at my ribs and so did my Mother, and it seems that the rib/s on my right side are sticking out more than the left side.
I can also press my ribs down quite a bit too.
I have never broken anything, and I can't think of anything that would have caused this.

I'm in quite a bit of discomfort right now, and my back is starting to hurt a little.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
