Do you need to have evident bruising of the chest for you to have cracked a rib? Got kicked in the upper chest by a horse a week ago and I m becoming in more pain, chest gets tight then loosens up for a bit then tight depending on how I move. Sharp stabbing pain when I twist, bend over or lift anything. Awkard taking deep breaths. When I hold acround the area and move I can feel it popping/clicking. And yet I have no evident bruising? It s sore to the touch just above my right breast.
