Chest pain/ Rib popping

I'm 18 years old and for the past couple months I would get a chest pain (sharp) in about my 4-5th rib. It lasts about 3-5mins and really hurts to take a breath. I'll feel/hear a pop in my rib and I'm fine again. Any thoughts of what this could be and should I go in to see a doctor?

  Sounds like your rib is shifting or popping out of place, a condition called Ehlers-danlos Syndrome can be the root of this issue.

I too have EDS and my ribs do move and hurt like crazy....but always go back into place and it feels fine.

We do have an EDS forum here on MedHelp - http://www.medhelp.org/forums/show/417?camp=msc
