What can I do to ease the pain or speed up healing ?

2 days ago while sparring in boxing I was punched in the stomach and was winded from it. Since then I have been experiencing extreme discomfort/abdominal paint under my right rib, the pain intensifies at night and I can't sleep due to the pain. Theres no brusing but the area right under my rib is all tender. What can I do to ease the pain or speed up healing

Thanks for query.
As you had hard hit in abdomen,there is possibility of having internal injury.
You might have rib fracture.
Go for X ray thorasic ribs and ultrasound to rule out any internal injury.
Ok and bye.
