Xrays Of Broken Ribs
Hurt ribs &muscles around ribs a week ago, xray showed not broken but when mashed on I can feel them move & pop. Still have moderate pain. What is it?

You can also get pneumonia from not breathing deeply enough because of the pain, or puncture a lung from too much movement if there's a sharp edge.
