i did the same thing 2 weeks ago - and yes its hurts - the only hope you have is 2 - 4" Self-Adhering Elastic Bandage - wrap you ribs nice and tight - you may soon be able to laugh again, maybe cough - as now your friends have no more sympathy for you - its been 2 weeks - i did not go to the doc- but its like breaking you finger or toe your brusied ribs are SOL - but i want to be honest - if this was my right top side and not my left "ie heart area" - I would of been screaming outside of the ER ASAP -
