    No one but a doctor who examines him in person can say for sure what it is.  The symptoms you describe sound a lot like costohondritis.  Here is an article that explains more about it:  Costochondritis: A Common Cause of Chest Pain

     

    I would encourage your husband to see a doctor to rule out anything more serious and to begin appropriate treatment to ease his pain.  I hope he is feeling better very soon.
