I hit my ribs on a tree while sleigh riding. I went for an X-ray and it wasn't broken. But now, it is swollen under my left breast muscle and I feel weak. What should I do?
Chest wall injury: X-rays sometimes can miss rib fractures, however they usually do r/o lung injury or collapse. This type of injury typically takes weeks to heal since it is impossible to rest the chest wall muscles from a bruise. I would be applying local heat and taking otc pain meds. See your pcp if you continue not to improve. ...Read more

Do not work your muscles too often. Your muscles require 2-4 days of rest after a workout. You are better served (most likely) by working out different muscles and muscle groups on different days.
