I too experienced similar pain in my upper rib cage area.  It seemed to be right in the rib. I am male.  None-the-less, this last for a longtime, probably a year - it would come and go.  At times the pain was so bad I couldn't sleep for days.

I under went every test you can imangine - chest xray, ultrasound, bloodwork - nothing showed up.  I thought for sure I had a cancer.  I now think it was some short of viral infection - but who knows.  The Dx was maybe pleurisie(sp?). All I did was worry myself sick, literally.  I soon after developed wierd sensory neuroapathy symptoms which i believe were stress related to the pain in my chest area.  Antidepressant drugs seem to work me.  

Know that you are now alone out there.  Wish I could be of more help.
