Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 11 months ago

you could have dislocated a rib possibly or strained a muscle in your chest.

cartilage usually are pretty tough and usually will not tear, but muscles can strain or tear

a chest and rib xray or a chest CT scan can tell for sure if you may have dislocated a rib in your chest in the area

you can try heating pads and ice packs on the area to see if that helps

you can try taking some tylenol and advil and see if that helps as well

let me know if you have questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
