Pain in ribs after a strong sneeze. Bruise appearing in the same area. Suggestions?

Hi..last night after a strong sneeze , I felt immediate pain to my rib area on my left side. Noticed it wasn t a usual pain that I ve ever had. Went to bed..slept on my stomach and woke up in excruciating pain. It is very specific to a small area right on the rib bone itself. Also noticed a bruise appearing in that exact area.

Thanx for query.
Well after sneezing if u had a bruise in that area it pints towards rib fracture.
If ur bone density is weak generally such people tend to have fractures on minimal stress.
I suggest getting a x ray of chest done to see the rib cage.if fracture is there then orthopaedecian will be of grat help.byeeee.
