Any ideas on this rib pain?

I woke up on Thursday with a pain in my ribs right-hand side and to the side of them - thought I'd slept funny/pulled something but it is not improving. Kind of a dull ache - worse when I move around. Any ideas? Google suggest gallstones but the pain is not under my ribs more like on them iyswim - almost as though someone has kicked me there. Will probably pop to GP (if I can get appt!) but just wondered if anyone had experienced similar. No other notable symptoms.

Pain has lessened a bit but still aware of it - if it was a pulled muscle, would it really take this long to heal?

If you have pulled a muscle between the ribs, it can take a few weeks to clear up.
Did you make a gp appointment?
