I'm just getting over the flu and bronchitis, and it's been a long haul. I've been coughing and coughing (and did I mention coughing?) like crazy, and yesterday I both heard and felt something in my ribs give a little "pop!" Now I feel like I've got a pulled muscle on my rib cage under my boob, and it hurts to lie on it, roll over, reach for something etc. When I'm lying down I can also feel a lump on one of my ribs.
Not to be paranoid, but could I have done damage to a rib? Or is it more likely a pulled muscle? Anyone got experience with this sort of thing?
