This is a pity post 馃槴馃槴馃槴馃槴

I took a bad tumble on the ice this morning and I鈥檓 fairly sure I鈥檝e cracked my ribs 馃槴馃槴馃槴

I鈥檓 in so much pain right now, it hurts to breathe. I鈥檝e rang my brother (with lots of tears 馃槀) and he鈥檚 on his way home to check I鈥檓 ok or if I need to go and get checked out.

Ow ow ow ow ow 馃槪
Try pushing down on your sternum, that's what my doctor did when I had a similar issue. Apply lots of ice, take lots of ibuprofen, and take a big, long rest. 馃
@BlueVeins it鈥檚 the back of my rib cage, it鈥檚 so painful 馃槪

Oh good god i hope youre ok?!

I do have 1 question though

Where the hell did you find ice?? Its the 1st day of summer lol
@Gangstress lol at the ice rink

It鈥檚 so bad, not even joking, I just keep crying

@SophieSmiles oh mate im so sorry 馃

Get it looked at by a+e and get painkillers down ya. If you're struggling to move id say its broken xx
Ice? Wow.

Can you take a deep breath? If you broke your ribs I hope you have a comfortable chair to sleep in , because laying down is the worst ! Been there .
@SophieSmiles ouch ! Hope your back is ok .And the rib brace they will want to strap you up with, is a torture device . It鈥檚 gotta be.
@TexChik thank you

@SophieSmiles Cry if you have to, i wont hold it against you. Well, after you're healed fully i will make fun of you about it but that is later :) Hugs
@Jaydee7 I鈥檝e cried so much I鈥檓 not gonna lie 馃槪
Jaydee731-35, M
@SophieSmiles Sorry Sophie 馃挏 I really hope it's not fractured. Here's hoping you get well soon
Oh you poor, poor kid. They can't do anything for cracked ribs. Sometimes they will wrap your ribcage tightly, but it's not supposed to be necessary.

Take some pain relievers.
@4meAndyou I鈥檓 going to hospital to Hager checked out, it hurts so much
Unfortunately there's nothing they can really do with broken ribs, you will be in pain for a while馃挋馃槪馃馃
@AthenaArena it hurts so bad 馃槴
@SophieSmiles you better get checked though just in case
@AthenaArena yea we鈥檙e heading to the hospital now
Awwwww babes!! Imma give you virual hugs 馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃
@SophieSmiles but then who'd i complain about life to? 馃ズ
@PervertedPrincessOfDeath in that case maybe avoid the hugs 馃槝
@SophieSmiles god damn it! Fine imma just keep sending virtual hugs 馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃馃
Damn that's horrible. I hope it's not very serious 馃様 human bodies can be stupid.
@SophieSmiles Are you going to get it checked? If it's broken there's some sort of a vest you wear till it heals. And pain meds of course. It happened to my grandpa once and it healed within 2 weeks.
@PiecingMeBackTogether I鈥檓 at the hospital now but will be waiting hours probably. Think they will x ray me but just have to wait
@SophieSmiles Goodluck cutie 馃
So sorry to hear this, also it's going to hurt to laugh for a very long time :(

Does the ice rink have a medical person around?
@Viper I got myself home and now my brother is taking me to hospital to get checked
@SophieSmiles good luck 馃

@geoam1 it鈥檚 awful 馃槪
Had broken ribs, definitely an "Oouch!" situation. If you do manage to get comfortable you fear moving because the pain is strong.
@UnderLockDown it鈥檚 so painful, I鈥檓 exhausted but it hurts too much to sleep
WaryWitchWandering31-35, F
Oh no 馃ズ

Blows to the Ribs are the worst 馃槩

@wackidywack I might have to but don鈥檛 know they鈥檒l do anything anyway. My brother knows about this stuff so waiting for him to get here
@SophieSmiles probably won't but might prescribe some pain relievers for the pain as it heals
So sorry!! I hope everything turns out well.

@Mindfulness it鈥檚 so painful 馃槪
@SophieSmiles I've broken and bruised mine many times in various sports and accidents, I can't give you any advice other than pain killers I'm afraid. There's really nothing you can do.
