What do broken ribs feel like?
Me and my daughter were playing around the other day and she jumped up and landed on my rib with her knees (she's only 41 pounds). I don't have insurance but my ribs have been hurting ever since.
Additional Details
By Zigg 20....You're right. I should have insurance but I'm a single parent with three kids and am waiting for my insurance to kick in at my job.

And how silly of me to ask about a sore rib in the INJURY section of ANSWERS! Your a genius!!!

well the upside to this is that broken and fractured ribs do heal on there own if not severally damaged or affecting any other organs, keep it easy for the next few days

I HAVE BROKEN 16 BONES IN THE LAST 2 YEARS DUE TO OSTEOPORSIS. IAM ONLY 41 BUT FROM MY PAST ALCOHOLISM I RUINED MY BONES. I HAVE BROKEN ALMOST EVERY RIB AND I' LL TELL THAT RIBS HURT THE MOST. IT IS HARD TO BREATH BECAUSE OF PAIN. IT JUSR PLAIN ****** HURTS DOING ALMOST ANYTHING. YOUR RIBS WILL HURT PRETTY BAD FOR ABOUT 2 WEEKS AND WILL HEAL IN ABOUT 2 MONTHS. YOU WILL STILL FEEL PAIN AFTER THE TWO WEEKS, JUST NOT AS BAD. THE BAD THING WITH BROKEN RIBS IS THAT THERE ISN'T MUCH A DOCTOR CAN DO. A DOCTOR CAN WRAP YOUR RIBS WITH AN ACE BANDAGE TO HELP YOU WHEN YOU COUGH OR SNEEZE.
IF YOU DECIDE NOT TO SEE A DOC, WRAP YOUR RIBS TIGHTLY WITH AN ACE BANDAGE. ALSO TAKE DEEP BREATHS ABOUT 6 TIMES A DAY. IT WILL HURT, BUT IT KEEPS YOU FROM GETTING PNEUMONIA. IF YOU WERE TO ONLY TAKE SHALLOW BREATHS EVENTUALLY, YOUR LUNGS WOULD START TO COLLECT FLUID THAT WOULD LEAD TO PNEUMONIA.

It is not that easy to get a broken rib, you are still safe dont worry :) your pain now is most probably due to muscle strain, try doing some very gentle stretching exercises on your chest, it would help to relax your muscle.... good luck, get well soon and take care of yourself and daugther too...


me..
if you feel an intense sharp pain when you inhale... then yes most likely you have a broken rib... i would go to the doctor and get an X-Ray just to check.


A good girl gone bad
YOU MIGHT HAVE CRACKED A RIB MANY PPL HAVE BROKEN RIBS AND DONT EVEN KNO ABOUT IT

Broken ribs hurt! It may be tender over the site of the fracture. It hurts to breathe deeply or to cough. It may even be painful to breathe shallowly! The pain is worst about the third day, remains for some time, and gradually subsides. By three months or so after the injury, it shouldn't hurt any more.

As to treatment, it isn't a good idea to splint or brace the broken rib, as that restricts the motion of the underlying lung, and can lead to atelectasis (collapse of lung tissue) or pneumonia in the adjacent lung tissue. So it is best not to use any kind of rib belt.

It is possible that your injury is only a bruise. Bruises may be just as painful, but tend to heal more rapidly.

It hurts like hell
i broke a rib and it even hurt to breath
I doubt you broke your rib but there are also alot of other things that could be wrong maybe you should see someone about it

Go get an x-ray to see for sure. My Mom got a broken rib from her dog getting startled and lunging from her chest. The doctors said no way it was broken. It continued to hurt really bad and finally they x-ray it and sure enough broken.

I got kicked in the ribs in my martial arts class. Hurt like H.... but mine was a muscle sprain I think they said. However I couldn't drive because I physically couldn't put the car in gear with the excruciating pain.

Bottom line, you can't tell if it is broken without an x-ray. But with a rib I don't think there is anything they can do anyway. It just heals on its own with time.


hesperias_witch
Pain when breathing, especially deep breaths, sometimes a lung can collapse. Best bet is to go to the ER for a chest X-ray. It is also possible that you bruised them, if so you are going to hurt for a while up to a week or longer. Try not to laugh, as that will make you hurt worse


Just ME
Broken rib or ribs hurt very very bad.

This could be a bruise or break. Either way it hurts. It takes about 3 weeks on average to feel better after a broken rib. A bruise may not take as long.

They can't do much at the hospital for it other than issue pain meds or something. The rib just has to heal. Try taking some Tylenol or something to help a little bit (although that may not do much).

It may hurt when laughing, coughing, moving some etc if it is truly broke.

I hope you feel better soon


TheAimer
walk into an emergency room...they have to take you whether you have insurance or not!!! Don't do any self assessment, get an xray!

You may have cracked a rib, or have a soft tissue injury. When you have broken ribs, you will not have to go on line to figure it out. You will know. Now, if you just like to feel pain, and want to know for sure, then snort up a little black pepper. One sneeze is all that is needed. If you have to concentrate to keep from wetting your pants, well, you know.

The treatment is about the same for broken and/or cracked ribs. Put an ace bandage on it, to make you think they are doing something, and then suffer. Of course, when a broken rib punctures something, then they will recommend surgury to fix it,,,, other than that, you suffer. Of course, you would know that too when you started to ooze blood from places that normally do not ooze blood.

Best freaking tip I can give, get a pillow, and everytime you need to cough or sneeze, pull that pillow into the injured area to keep the bones from moving so much. This also works for cracked ribs, and soft tissue injuries.

Look on the bright side, at least she didn't hit your n**s.

Hang in there.

Every time you take breath it feels like your having a heart attack. pain all over your chest on the side that was injured. I dislocated a rib once and I though I would die. The doc put it back in place in a few minutes but, it took a few days for it to heal. If you have medical go see the doctor, an ex-ray could tell if its broken or not, if it is broken or jagged it could punture a lung. So go see the doc and quit worrying.


Panda
you pretty much wouldn't be able to move. you'd be bed ridden and would avoid laughter.

you may just be bruised. but trust me, you'd be in too much pain to even post this question if they were.


Aly
Go see the doctor - it may just be a bruise, but better safe than sorry.


Amkii
Broken ribs would be ridiculously painful. It would hurt to even walk if you had a broken rib.

I have had two fractured ribs. It hurts really bad when you cough, sneez, laugh, breath in, and walk. There really isn't much you can do. Go have some x-rays taken. In the mean time lie down on the side of the ribs that are hurting to ease the pain while you sleep.

Sharp piercing pain at the site of the injury. A 41 pound child can break your ribs.


Jong Wook W
If ur ribs were broken you wouldn't be standing.
Go see doctor for muscle damage.


LvR-C
It's probabaly an out of place rib, go see a chiropractor they should tell you and be able to pop the rib back in place.

Does it hurt to breath? If it does something's wrong.


yournamehere
if your ribs were broken, it would hurt you to breath, tie your shoes, lift your arm and do other daily activities. sorry about that though. there's not much a doctor can do about broken ribs anyway.

Well if a rib was broken it would hurt quite a bit to breath.


Tom R
broken ribs make it hurt to breath, every time you inhale the joint of the break rubs and causes the nerves to fire off. other than that it feels like any other broken bone


JB
Does it hurt to breath or tie your shoes. then they may be cracked or broken,
