One of my upper ribs on my back give me a stabbing pain every time i move and breathe but its only the one bone on the one side. Its the left side and with every day the pain becomes worse and more frequent making it hard to do every day activities. The rib is painful when pushed on but doesnt show sings of bruising outside the skin, the area is also slightly swollen.
Can anybody help? I would be very greatful. Thanks!
Hi I suppose a health professional might be able to check for a broken rib. A relative of mine had one but there was nothing that could be done for it. He wore a binder with velcro for comfort. A broken rib could puncture a lung I suppose if bad enough was there an injury? Sometimes a broken rib can happen spontaneously and may indicate other worse problems for the future and it might be a good idea to find the cause of the problem.
