Sorry about spelling.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I did not injure my ribs in any way.
Doctor: Dr. Shah, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Thanks for the information.

It does not sound like anything serious and certainly not related to your heart or broken bibs. It must be very minor musculoskeletal pain, like costochondritis that can present like this at your age. It's mostly managed at home with conservative treatment such as rest, hot water bag, OTC pain meds like Advil, and avoiding activities that might trigger this pain. Mild stretching exercise is also helpful.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
