Upper Abdominal Pain

Hi, I am female and 17 years old. For the last few years I have had pain in the upper abdomen/ directly between and below my ribcage. The pain usually lasts at least a half an hour, sometimes longer, and I have problems breathing deeply. When I push between my lower ribs/ upper abdomen it is painful. It also occurs when I have been laying on my stomach for a little while, and I have to roll over because of the pain.
What could cause this?

Oh, and I do not have any gas, belching, vomiting, heartburn/ acids, or diarrhea like many other people who have posted asking about upper abdominal pain. It is simply pain which I can only compare to pain I experienced when I injured my sternum 2 years ago.

I have the exact same thing. I can't figure it out. Is it kinda a cramp feeling?
