Got an injured Rib playing football a 11 days ago. I played 3 games in the 5 days after and while it was painful it was fine especially when taking over the counter pain killers.

After resting for 6 days its got more and more painful.

Unsure if its a cracked rib or just a bruise. There is no bruising though. I got it from an opponent elbowing me.

Any advice?

Yeah if you feel like a are getting a cold, or are particularly flemmy get to the doctor's asap.

Bruised, fractured, cracked and broken ribs all have the exact same treatment: tough it out.

In 4-6 weeks it will heal itself, the only issue is you're more prone to chest infections.

Thanks. It’s fucking miserable.
