Patient : I am 7 months pregnant ahve have been coughing for over a month. I've been on Benylin, an inhaler, antibiotics, and codeien. not to mention i constantly drink honey and lemon and ginger. nothing helps much. although the codeine helped the cough a little bit, now i have extreme rib pain. the rib pain is under both armpits and it's so painful to cough, move and even breathe. could my ribs be broken or fractured? if so, how do i treat it?
