yea cracked my ribs falling off of a step down box last year, the part where i fell from was a good 4 feet off the ground and the way i landed on my side caused my ribs to crack near the sternum. then on the way down to the lodge to take a break i got run over by a little kid and landed almost the same way, you know, just for good measure. very painful especially the first few days. just take it easy, if the pain gets really really bad go to the doctor for pain meds and an x-ray, but be warned its gonna cost you a couple hundred bucks for them to just check you out and say "well heres some meds, just take it easy" and if your coughing up blood rush to the emergency room asap.
