Dr. Benard Shehu MD

Hi i read your query. I suggest going immediately to ER because the pain may be caused by ribs fracture or other serious conditions.

Dr. Raju A.T MD

A rib fracture is very painful condition and it hurts all the time during breathing and also during upper limb movements. It could be a soft tissue contusion. Do take pain killers like Ibuprofen

Dr.  Satvinder Bakshi MD

It is likely you have damaged a rib , please dont ignore it and meet your doctor. Thanks
