Thank you for the additional information.
If you have a primary care doctor (family doctor or internist) that is who I would go to.
What you need are xrays of the ribs.
There is not much that is done for rib fractures, if that is what you have, unless you have developed complications of an underlying lung
injury (symptoms would be shortness of breath).
The treatment for a rib fracture is pain control with over the counter medications (ibuprofen) and if necessary-prescription strength pain killers.
It can take about 6 weeks for a rib fracture to heal, depending on the severity of the injury.
If you do have a rib fracture, you will need to modify your activities at work to prevent further injury. (no heavy lifting, etc).
Feel free to ask any follow up questions you may have.
