Where is that on the rib cage? Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the fracture? Have you used any medication for it? About a month now and yes I am taking medication for it. This was a follow up appointment at my primary doctor (I cracked a couple of ribs while on vacation in July). May 07, · Does anyone know the difference in feeling of having a bruised rib versus a separated or cracked one? I've been trying to find it on the internet but there isn't a lot of info on how to determine it. My boyfriend and brother both think it's just bruised and that I don't need to go to the hospital, but it really really hurts! Like, I get sharp pain whenever I try to lay down or sit up, when I.

Jan 05, · Well, with all this coughing, my ribs have been hurting and it's been really painful. Yesterday, I had a bit of a coughing fit and felt this god almighty pain in the back of my rib cage. It really did double me up with the pain. I phoned the quacks up and got to see the nurse. I told her what was up and shee told me to see the doc.

Previous 1 2 Next. Anyone ever come off your horse and cracked maybe broke a rib? And, my back muscles are in a total knot, I'm sure from compensating.
Anyway, I'm entered in a clinic and show in a coupe of weeks and want to ride - my nice steady horse - not the other one. Just wondering how long it takes to feel o.
Thanks, so much. Tags: None. I would say if you truly have a cracked rib, at least another few weeks. Comment Post Cancel. I've cracked my ribs a couple of times. Once it was quite low and it really hurt to ride. The other time was a higher rib and there was no pain while I was riding but as soon as I got off I would be in incredible pain that wouldn't go away until I was riding again Getting out of bed, coughing, sneezing, lifting all caused me pain oh the memories I'd take it easy for a few weeks.
The pain makes the rest of your day miserable. I'm guessing you haven't had an x-ray if you're not sure whether it's "cracked or broken". Cracked IS broken. The pain from fractured ribs is intense, and if it's a nondisplaced fracture there's probably no big risk UNLESS you take a fall and finish the job.
I would ride if I could tolerate the pain. I'd wear a vest just to be safe. Nope, not I.
There are a lot of somewhat important guts lying beneath our ribs. Click here before you buy. Originally posted by galloping-gourmet View Post.
Little OT!! I will get an x-ray for sure.
And if so, how? My pain is localized in one spot, especially when I sneeze, not so much when I laugh or cough any more. Ribs and the tissues that surround them are very richly innervated. In other words, they hurt like hell. Yes, a whopping bruise can hurt like the very devil. It's tough to say if a bruise hurts "as bad" as a fracture unless you've had both in the same spot. A man must love a thing very much if he not only practices it without any hope of fame or money, but even practices it without any hope of doing it well.
Little Valkyrie. I cracked my rib last december in a fall a mild crack of the 9th rib on the left side and I was out of the tack for a week, then rode the steady guy for another week then was back to riding my mostly reliable mare.
Its certainly not a fun injury, although it could be about a million times worse. Since you are not in agony riding now, you should be a-ok for the clinic.
It's psychosomatic. You need a lobotomy. I'll get a saw. I didn't break a rib but tore the cartilage in my sternum from a fall. I could barely move for several weeks--also banged up my back muscles as well. I waited to ride until about a week or so after the clicking sound in my chest stopped--it was six weeks. However, I could not get into bed, get into a car or truck, walk, sit, or stand without a lot of pain--you get the picture--so riding was definitely out.
Ibuprofen made life a lot easier! Hope you heal fast! Thanks all, I will proceed carefully. And, try not to sneeze much!!!
Originally posted by Snapdragon View Post. I took a really nasty fall as a kid hit the wall of an indoor at about mpm Anyway, I really was just banged up and bruised x-rays and a cat scan. I hurt for weeks and weeks, but was riding the next week.
I've since had similar falls.
They hurt, a lot. Thanks, all. I went to my doctor, he did a very thorough exam and based on the exam, didn't think I it was broken. So, no xray. I am feeling better each day and am in sincere need of a massage, big tight muscles in my back. I'll still take it easy, and based on how I feel in 2 weeks, decide on the clinic and show.
I'm glad I went, though.
