Bruised ribs, painful. What can subside the pain?

Hello About 3 weeks ago I came off my jetski doing 90 kmh and it brused my ribs. A week after the crash I went dirt bike riding with my mates and it was fine but I just went for a ride today (2 weeks later) and couldn t complete a lap of my track because of my pain. My nan said the pain will get worse before it gets better. I was wondering if this is true and if it isn t why would my pain be getting worse ? Thanks for your time Kind regards Daniel

General Surgeon 's  Response
Pain is of musculoskeletal in nature.
Please take a muscle relaxant for 5 days and also take bed rest.
Breathing exrecises will be helpful.
If the pain is not subsiding even after muscle relaxants,consult your doctor and get an X ray chest to rule out any bony injury and also any blood collection around the lung.
Wish you speedy recovery
