Take some Ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) or something for the swelling at least.
Suggestion... Move the rock! lol
Not much you can do for ribs. They dont wrap them like they used to so I think Advil or something along that line. And dog-gone-it, Move that rock! Hope you feel better soon.
Sleep on your side with the painful side DOWN. Don't let it contract much, but don't stretch it either. If you need to sneeze or cough, back into a corner of the room or chair and wrap your arms around yourself to hold both sides in place. The fact that you can even sit and type says you probably tore or bruised the chest wall muscles. If you had broken or cracked a rib, you wouldn't be here. You'd be howling every time you breathed. Rib injuries are very painful, even if it's only the muscles.
Two ibuprofen every 4 hours, three at a time if your stomach can handle them. Within 3 days it should be easing up, but be very careful not to aggravate it for at least 2 weeks.
I have lost count of the times I have broken my ribs. X-rays of me are always a wonder at the doctor's office, I have the lumpiest ribs known.
Hope you feel better very soon!
everything what they said.. but don't forget to stretch.. don't let your side totally stiffen, that seemed to slow down the healing when I bounced off my steering wheel a few years back.
Ibuprofen and streaching and I hope you feel better very soon.
