Can A Nerve Get Hit And Swollen

Hi I had hit the side of my rib really hard last week and now it's swollen and hurts when I touch it should i get and x ray?
Probably not: a non displaced or mildly displaced rib fracture without complication (pneumothorax, hemothorax, pulmonary contusion ) is not worth diagnosing. You will live with the same rib fracture pain for 6 weeks whether or not it is confirmed by radiography. Any worsening shortness of breath, go to the ED directly. That could indicate increase pneumothorax or bleeding into pleural space. ...Read more

Time and ice: The sooner you get ice packs in the area the better. A bag of frozen peas also works well.

However, you should also see a dentist just to make sure nothing is broken or needs any other treatment or attention. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Last night and this morning i hit the side of my hand and now it's swollen. What can I do to get the swelling down?
My finger is swollen and I can't get my rings down it. A softball hit it hard and I heard it crack. I cannot bend all the way.. Jammed or broke?
Need xray: Sounds painful! Very difficult to determine if it is broken without an xray. I recommend buddy taping it to the neighboring finger, icing it 20 min on 20 min off, and keeping it elevated above chest level to reduce the swelling. Seek medical care if you are concerned about a possible fracture. Does not necessarily require ER. Urgent Care or your primary care provider should be fine. ...Read more
