Rib fracture

I think i have rib fracture.
I have pain when I breathe deeply and cough.I fell down on my rib 3 days ago.
But I have been walking and doing all sorts of stuff since then,ignoring the pain.Is it ok if I dont strain myself much and go to school,do simple stuff.I mean,pain is not that much,but is it a big deal?

Re: Rib fracture

i'm wondering if maybe you bruised your rib area after falling ?
Did you not have any xrays of your injury? Hope all is feeling better soon.

Be Well
