I have been coughing over a month my left rib has been hurting i went to 2 doctors xrays showed nothing i popped something in my rib today and it hurts worse
It can be a hairline fracture in the rib which can be missed on x ray. I would suggest you to take Brufen and should not lie down on affected side. Try to cure your cough as well because it is not going to allow ribs to heal.

I am just getting overa nasty lung infacten. But my left rib cage hurts alot. It hurts to breath, mover, bend over. Could I have broken a rib coughting so much?
Yes, you have pain from a musculo-skeletal source in your rib cage. Your cough may have caused it. It is important to control cough. Rib brace may help. Rib fracture can further cause damage to lung and other organs. See a doctor.
