In brief: Yes

It is normal to feel tired or fatigued after any significant injury.
Multiple rib injury is very painful and will also impair your ability to breathe normally; it will hurt to take a deep breath or cough. Taping or stabilization of the chest wall can help if there are rib fractures present.
