Sharp pain and bruising on 1 side of my ribs after a hard fall on concrete stairs. Should I get checked out? I can breathe even though it hurts badly.

Its a good idea: to find out if you broke a rib since this will take 4-5 weeks to heal (There is no specific treatment except pain medication and ICE/HEAT)
Hope its just a bruise since this will feel better within a week!
Good luck and I hope this helps!

Once growth is completed there may be a persistent bony "bump" and in some patients a small ossicle. If this is impacted, there may be more pain and persistent pain than someone without o.S. History.
