Have you Bruised, cracked, or strained a rib? This is friggin killing me! If so, how long did it stay painful. I have a pretty large threshold for pain....but I gotta say when I can not sleep for fear of rolling over and can not breath a full breath it gets pretty annoying pretty fast. I think it is just bruised because I really do not remember hitting my chest on anything in the last few days.

Yea, I did it snowboarding. Mine was minimal though, the pain toned down a ton after a few days and then it just felt bruised for a few weeks.

Day one was Saturday while camping. Wasn't so bad then, just uncomfortable. After getting back home on Sunday though, could not take more than half a breath and can NOT lay on my left side. Monday took a Darvocet and about 6 IIPA's and passed out for the night. Tue can finally take a full breath again but hurts like hell. Last night could not get more than an hour of sleep at a time. Would twist or breath to heavy and shoot back awake. Today this thing is ok as long as I don't breath, move, sneeze, think about moving breathing or sneezing.

/rant Sorry to go on about it. When I dropped my bike doing 80 it wasn't this bad. Just couldn't put weight on my right leg. Least I could breath.

Broken ribs can hurt for months although it won't be excruciating like it is now. Instead, you'll breathe deeply and feel a twinge, that kind of thing. When I bruised my ribs last summer it was 6 months before I stopped getting the occasional pain.

Yeah, mine hurt for about a month when I broke it. The weird thing was after 3 days it hurt MUCH worse than right after I did it.

When it happened, I knew immediately that I cracked a rib. I knew there was nothing a doctor could do except say, "yup, you broke a rib, tough it out." but after three days the skin on my chest right above the break started going numb for extended periods of time. I finally broke down and when to the Urgent Care and the doctor told me, "Yup, you broke a rib. There's nothing I can do for you." And the skin going numb is normal.

<Sigh> $250 down the drain.

After about a month, it only hurt if I sneezed. It's been about 2.5 months now and I'm back to normal.

I have no idea what I did to it, I assume it is only a bruise because there is no...wait for it......Bruising. Ah well I refuse to go to a Dr. for an injury that has no "cure" other than wait it out.

Tailbone is 900000000000 x worse.

I recently had my tonsils and Uvula removed. I was taking 50mg of percoset every 4 hrs and barely keeping me above the pain. 2 weeks I lost 30lbs from inability to eat or drink. Worse pain ever.

yeah I had my floating ribs seperated in an accident almost 15 years ago, and they still hurt every once in a while if I move just right

Broke mine a couple of years back mountain biking. Hurt like a mother for over a month. Eventually gets better though.
