Patient :A few days ago I was playing basketball and got bumped in the chest. The bump knocked the wind out of me and my right ribcage hurt a bit. Its been maybe three days and I still feel pain when I walk sometimes. It comes and goes. It doesnt hurt when I breath, it feels almost like the pain you get when you run, like the cramping feeling. I want to know if I bruised my ribs or broke a rib?
