    So, this all starting a little bit ago... i got sick and came down with a terrible cough.
    the cough stayed w/ me for a while, and progressively got worse. well anyway, as
    the days passed, i kept coughing, and on my bday, i was still coughing really bad.
    then all of a sudden, my ribs on the right side started to hurt like crazy. like a deep
    bruising or some shit. like some one took a bat and swung it at my ribs. anyway, from
    then on, every time i coughed, sneezed, yawned, took a deep breath or anything, my ribs
    would fucking hurt like crazy. i concluded w/ the help of my friends and my mom (a nurse)
    that i either bruised really bad or cracked a/some ribs. this isn't the first time i've heard
    of this happening from a cough. people cough so hard, and frequent, that it can crack a rib.
    and i think that's what happend to me.

    now, it's been a week or two since the above story. my ribs have not fully recovered, and
    still feel pretty bad. well even though my ribs weren't fully recovered, they felt much better
    than before. anway, this morning i sneezed, and i felt/heard a crack come from the same
    area where my ribs hurt from before. now, i think i just re-cracked my ribs. now, the pain
    is even worse than before. b/c before i could just sit and mind my own business, and it would
    not bother me... until i provoked it (ie cough)... but now, it just hurts...so bad actually,
    when i sneeze, i almost fall on my knees. i can't talk for like 30 seconds, etc...it's bad

    now, i know some ass is gonna say man up and stop bitching... so yeah i hear you, but go
    crack a rib, and see how it feels. i'm just wondering if anybody has gone through this,
    and could give me some pointers. i've already looked up any info on the net, and talked to
    my mom (nurse), and there isn't much i can do but just wait it out until it heals by itself...


    anyway, now i'm sitting here wearing a back brace pulled up high around my chest to help
    support my ribs. and mind u, it looks like i'm wearing a tube top...dont' exactly have the
    chest for it though...keeps slipping down....

    anyway, discuss if anything remotely related has happend to you. thanks you, and happy
    new year

    if it was cracked you'd be having some major problems breathing.. you should still go get xrayed.

    umm, did you ever think of going to a doctor?

    thats what I would do...and if you had a bad cough, you should've taken robitussin dm...that helps wicked bad coughs...

    but I will say, I've had a bad cough for the last month, and it hasn't hurt my ribs, but all my innards hurt, like my liver and my chest/heart hurts...

    of course i've thought about going to the doctor, but the only thing the doctor would do would take an x-ray, and tell me to take some advil to kill the pain, and wait for my ribs to heal....b/c there really isn't anything a person can do

    ive broken a few ribs in my day..i usually just think its pain for a day or so, but then you can notice it when you take breaths, just be careful and rest it up.

    It is probably just a pulled/bruised muscle. I have the same thing, but under different circumstances
