Yes, I often get the feeling like a rib is floating and digging in when I bend over.

Yes. If I move a certain way, I get an immediate & intense muscle spasm that always affects the right side of my front rib cage. It is very painful & forces the air out of my lung on the right side. There is no cracking or sound. It's like a boa constrictor is squeezing me.

Yes. The way my RA doctor explained it to me is our tendons and ligaments are tightening up therefore it is causing us pain.
I have found stretching really helps a lot. Go to Pinterest and google stretches for chest, sides and back. I start my day with stretching. Even before I get out of bed.
Now it’s going to be uncomfortable when you start but it will be worth it

It does sound like costochondritis which alot of us have had. It took two er visits before I was diagnosed.
