12 days ago I was hit in the chest (sternum


Q: 12 days ago I was hit in the chest (sternum area) when I was hit I was reaching for something so my shoulders were curled in. I felt my sternum push in and extreme pain. It has almost been 2 weeks but I am still experiencing extreme pain between my breast when I curl my shoulder in, or position myself a certain way (mostly when laying down), or if I lift something. When I google blunt force chest trauma of course I get the worst. My question is what do you think it is, anything serious? And if it were something life threatening (like punctured a vital organ) would that have been immediate or am I still at risk? Laying in bed my chest hurts, which makes it hard to breathe, which then causes me anxiety. So I can't sleep and I am anxious
