Pain in the chest on playing football. What is wrong?

i have chest pain after playing football about 7 hours ago it hurts only in certain positions, such as when I arch my back. Its sort of a dull pain that suddenly intensifies, around my sternum. I m a goalkeeper, so I hit the ground quite hard every now and again. I didn t feel any pain immediately after the match. wondering what i might have done?

Thanks for writing to us

Problems with ribs are easy to recognize. They hurt alot. When it really hurts, then you know you've done something wrong.

Most likely you'll have to rest in certain positions, avoid certain activities, take ibuprofen (eat or drink milk with it, plus milk gives you calcium to fix your bones).

Visit the doctor and get it evaluated.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
