Re: rib pain

Where does it hurt? Side, back or sternum? Possible causes are rib fracture, rib bruising. Probably a rib bruise, a fracture hurts like hell (everytime you breath). Been there, done that. Ice the area, take OTC pain medication, should clear up. If not, go see chiropractor, have some films done.
