If you have insurance I wouldn't hesitate. If you don't I'd still get it checked but that is just me. Plus I'm old things heal slower and I break more easily

It is a shame when a decision to have yourself checked out by a doctor can come down to whether you have insurance or not. I hope the poster starts feeling better real soon. My chest/rib slam last year caused me 1 month of discomfort.

To be fair, Cr0 is probably right and it's probably just a broken rib and there's nothing to do but wait.
But why take the chance?
Yes,.. If it's fractured or broken, there isn't a whole lot too be done about it. Dr. might tape it, might not. BUT,.. and this is a big butt, suppose it is broken. I can't know your level of pain tolerance, but maybe you're a super hero and you get along Ok dealing with the pain thinking it's nothing too serious, so you go boarding again!!

All it would take is a relatively minor bump or fall,.. Now, you risk having a jagged shard of rib shoved into a lung or worse.

Really better to be safe than sorry!! K?

...and here I was thinking "I" was the only one that gravity was treating differently than it did a decade or two ago??

Default went there got ribs cracked

I cracked 2 ribs falling on a rail two years ago.
It didn't hurt much while i was still "hot" and i kept riding the whole day , the next day was another story and i went to the doc who told me that
It's fucking important to get checked by a doc when you think you broke your ribs cuz you can also have a pneumothorax ".
I had only 2 broken ribs but checking on google what was a pneumothorax i'm glad i didn't have that.

Sorry to revive a thread but just sharing my experience:

Friday boarded all day, last run of the day did a goofy 180 in the park and landed on my side on hardpack. Ribs hurting BAD... Took a couple advil on the way home and tried to live with it.

Went to the hospital in the morning. They gave me a bunch of advil and tylenol, and checked a bunch to make sure I was breathing normally (other than the pain in the ribs). The doctor said there was no point in taking an x-ray and just to take it easy and pick up some tylenol and advil on the way home. I mentioned doing a competition this coming week and she said she could do an xray if I wanted but there wasn't much need.

So I'm living the painkiller life, crossing my fingers that the pain goes away substantially by Friday morning.

LOL! Yeah better this than AIDS. I'm not sure what I was thinking on that jump, I've done the same switch 180 a bunch of times at Nakiska and on little side hits. I think I was trying to go to big or something?!? (on the Small jump of all places)

Using ice packs and drugs to hopefully help, I'll just be bent if this affects my Friday/Saturday riding...
