Landed On ribs
 
I took a decent slam to my ribs when snowboarding.
I now have pain on my right upper chest area it's not completely unbearable. ( tho I have taken Pain relief ) But it is pretty uncomfortable and when taking a breath in feel a popping kinda clicking sound.
Is this doctor worthy or should I wait a few days?
Has anyone done anything similar?

Thanks

ive done this many times and theres nothing you can really do except try not to hurt it more, i pretty much broke my rib last year and all they did was give me some pain killers.

Sounds like you have AIDS, sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Go see a doctor.
Better safe than sorry.

Agreed with Cr0, there's not much they will do assuming you didn't damage a lung or break multiple ribs. Only thing I'll add is if you're taking Ibuprofen take it regularly, even if you're not hurting that bad at the time. Some decent info below:

And the only way to know that is to go see a doctor.

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?

It's not a place for you to get a diagnosis of your injury. If you are asking that question, you might as well go see a witch doctor. Better yet, go see a doctor.

No, it's definitely AIDS.

If you hurt yourself, get it checked out. Le duh!

Its ridiculous. How the fuck can people give medical advice after reading a few lines on a snowboarding forum!

Whats more retarded than posting advice is actually listening to it. People who diagnose themselves on the internet need their head checked.

I've taken some pretty hefty chest hits while boarding. Last time I did it I tried to last through the pain for a week. I finally went into the doc and they started scanning me for potential fluid buildup around my heart! :blink:

Bottom line: this is the internet and we are not doctors. Only you can determine if you should see a doctor.

BTW, mine turned out to be nothing more than a bruised chest muscle. Healed up in a few weeks but it was very painful for the first two! I ride with upper body armour now...
