hello would you like to chat on this?
hello how long have you been having this?
this happened today around 530 pm
is there any swelling in the region?
no not that I can tell ,just sore
this is something that you need to show to your doctor
this is because it may not be just a muscle
may not be just a muscle pain
severe sneezing or coughing is known to cause rib fracture sometimes
since pain is so severe, this needs to be ruled out
show your doctor as soon as possible
meanwhile, RICE is the mode of treatment
compression - use an elastic bandage around your chest or simply tie a towel till you get one
and elevation - though not relevant for rib injty
try this for now along with the aspirin
but also be sure to get it looked up by your doctor ASAP
