my ribcage has moved in past couple of months!

No idea where to post this:

I noticed in November that my bra was uncomfortable, and looking at the area I saw that my ribcage was protruding on the left side. This is entirely new - not my normal anatomy for the past 40-some years. Just had an x-ray done which showed that everything looked normal.

I've had severe gerd for the past 5 years or so and I wonder if the two are connected, since I do feel more discomfort after eating sometimes. I did start running seriously last August; maybe that has something to do with it?

Anyone have any ideas about why my ribcage is trying to get out? Three doctors have looked at it now and just shook their heads.
