Possible referred pain or organ damage from broken 11th rib
I broke 11th posterior rib on the left side 2 days ago. Now I have severe pain in my left shoulder and elbow that is not helped by pain relievers. Is this anything I should be concerned about?

I my personal experience this is pretty much normal.  I have found when a rib is cracked or broken the associated muscle spasms can cause pain down my leg or into my arm.  I would suggest wrapping the ribs and alternating ice and heat.
