My Ribs Hurt When I Breathe Or Move Wrong

Frequently Asked Questions

    How can I make a bruised lung stop hurting?
    I've had what Im pretty sure is a virus the past couple of weeks, with nonstop coughing.
    My right lung recently started hurting very much whenever I coughed, or even breathed or moved the wrong way. I know it's a bruised lung and not a pulled muscle, as the pains are very different.

    Does anyone know a way I can make the pain stop? I'm still coughing, and this is starting to get out-of-hand, with pain that actually makes me cry out loudly in pain sometimes...

    • ANSWER:
      You've probably pulled muscles and ligaments near your ribs, or even bruised a rib. It's not your lung hurting, it's the muscles. A heating pad or moist heat will help. You can also get BenGay, Mineral Ice or other rub-in pain ointment. If you do the heating pad, do it on 15-20 minutes then off for a half hour, then on again and keep rotating. A nice hot shower or bath would also be of great benefit. And take ibuprofen or tylenol to relieve some of the pain.

    What does it mean when you have air bubbles in your right rib cage?

    • ANSWER:
      That pressure caused your back muscles to tighten up and they are now pressing onto nerves going around your chest to cause pains in the rib, chest or heart areas. When breathing the ribs expand into the muscles to cause the pains. To get rid of the pains you have to free up your back muscles to release the tight ones pressing into the nerves and here's how to free them up:
      (do while sitting on a chair)
      Place your left hand on your left leg next to your body. Place your right hand over your left shoulder, fingers over the back and the palm in the front, and firmly pull down on them and hold. After 30 seconds slowly lower your body forward and to the outside of your left leg, keeping your left arm as straight as possible. When you reach your lap remain there for another 10 seconds, then release the pressure but rest there for another 30 seconds. Then reverse your hand positions and do your right side.
      For best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed.

    What could cause pain between my ribcage?
    I woke up yesterday with this sharp pain between my ribcage. It is right in the middle just above my abdomen. It almost hurts like a muscle ache, but the only workout I did was a few sit ups the other night. Plus today it has gotten way worse. It hurt to breathe this morning and it hurts to move. Even sitting if I turn the wrong way it hurts. It kills me to bend over and when I touch my ribs i have a really sharp pain. But like I said, my abs don't hurt. What could be the cause of this? Could it just be from my little work out, or is it something else? Should I see a doctor or just wait it out?

    I have cough variant asthma, which means when I can't breathe I cough. I've never had pain like this before. Feels like someone kicked me in my right side, it hurts on the right about at the top of my ribs, any ideas whats wrong or what to do?
