Re: I sneezed, heard a pop - rib pain
There are several muscles, tendons, and ligaments that attach to your ribs and aid in torso movement, breathing, etc. I don't know if it's possible to fracture an intact rib by sneezing, even with a really forceful sneeze, so I would guess that maybe you pulled or damaged a muscle/tendon/ligament. If you DID fracture a rib, you could be at risk for liver, spleen, lung, etc. rupture, depending on which rib you fractured and how severe it is. If the pain is still ongoing, I would try to get some medical attention. Fractured ribs usually take well over a month to fully heal.
