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.
It as costochrondritis which means inflamation of joints in rib cages. Just take over the counter painkiller and you will be fine.
In case you have pain traveling to neck/arm along with shortness of breath are heaviness in chest please contact emergency services.
Thanks, hope it helps.
