sounds like costochondritis= it is inflammation of the cartilage around your ribs-
the cartilage could have "buckled " while you were asleep. try warm and cold compresses and ibuprofen for discomfort- if it doesn't imprrove i would suggest seeing a doctor for diagnosis and treatment.there are also muscles between the ribs call intercostals and they can spasm kind of like a " charlry-horse'- this can be caused by body positioning as well.
