Ribs hurt from coughing

Any suggestion, I have been coughing like crazy from bronchitis. Now my ribs hurt, BAD, what can I do. Ice, Heat or something else. Thanks Carrie

A vaporizer might help. I suffer from Bronchitis. It does help me.

Re: Ribs hurt from coughing

Try three in one.

3 parts water
2 parts white vinegar
1 part methylated spirits

mix together, partly soak a neckerchief (sp?) in the mixture and secure it around your throat- the wet part of the neckerchief.

Sleep with it in place and when you awake you may be better.

I want to die in my sleep like my Grandfather;.... not screaming like the passengers in the back seat of his car
