A pain under my left lung...what is it?

For the past week or so, I have had this uncomfortable pain under my left lung (left being if you were looking down from my point of view) and it is just now starting to be actually painful. I am a 19 year old male. I'm not very active and I don't think I pulled anything because it wouldn't go from uncomfortable to painful if it was just a muscle being pulled. Along with this pain came a headache but I'm not sure if it has anything to do with it. The headache might be a coincidence but my left side sure does hurt. Its not the lung its self I'm quite sure because my breathing is fine and it seems to be below it and/or behind it.

If anyone could give me an idea of what this might be, that would be great.

    There are a number of possibilities such as a condition called costochondritis (an inflammatory condition of the cartillage around the ribcage) but the only way to find out for sure what is going on is to see your doctor for further evaluation of the situation to see what they think is going on.

    It could be either Something sneaked into your eye during the night, hence the hurting while blinking or Sinus trouble - l had it a while ago and it does make it sore on the bone below the eye
