A doctor has provided 1 answer

Injury: You have a contusion of your ribs, intercostal muscles, intercostal nerves, and/or costochondral joints. Depending on the severity of your fall, you may even have broken a rib. In the worse case, you've punctured a lung. If you're short of breath, go right to an er!
