I was in a car accident a week ago On

Patient

Q: I was in a car accident a week ago. On Monday I got a feeling like a stitch in my side over the day it got unbearable. I cant take deep breathes, hurts to cough, sniffle. Any movement especially involving the core is excruciating. I was able to see my doctor today and he said it could be a broken rib. My question is do symptoms show immediately for a broken rib or can they take time?

Symptoms:  Shallow breathing, pain in chest and back, core moments painful
