|sleev-les||Another revive. Landed on my ribs this past Saturday. Don't even know how I did it other than I went off a jump and ended up sideways :/ I rode about 4 more runs after, just easy because I didnt want to hurt myself further then gave up for the day. I'm hoping its nothing too major, but it doesn't hurt to breath I really take a large breath or cough (and yeah, I have a cold and coughing so it figures). Its definitely not as bad as Saturday, but still hurts. Playing it safe and staying away from the slopes since I dont want to risk more injury and missing my vermont trip next month.|

Sounds like it's time to go to the Dr, Anticrobotic.
It's a good idea to go to the Dr any time you think you broke a rib. When I broke mine, I had no idea that it had punctured my lung - I didn't notice any difficulty breathing. But I ended up getting a chest tube, put on oxygen and kept in the hospital for a few days.
(Of course, I had also broken my collarbone, another rib and shoulder blade at the same time, so I have to admit I wasn't paying a lot of attention to my breathing . . . )

|Anticrobotic||This wasn't quite what I had in mind when I revived the thread. Oh well...|

What's this? Pinched nerves?

|scotty100||Sleeping on a busted rib is the worst.|

|jdmccright||Prob broke a rib. Its painful but it will heal in about 3 months. Prob should go to a doc so you can get an x ray to confirm. That is if you have $500 laying around.|

|Joe77||Last friday i fell on my left deltoid during a flat 180 switching regular to goofy while practicing carves on an intermediate blue. My shoulders were pushed back towards my lower neck and it hurts to raise my left arm or put a shirt on. It's feeling better today.|

I think without it would have been worse!
Also I've had some elbow hits and slid down some rocks since buying the armour, got back up with narry a scratch and rode on. But it still won't protect me from everything!
