I have rib pain from Fibromyalgia, anxiety and wearing a C-Pap for sleep apnea. There are a few illness that cause rib pain other than pulled muscles. All you need to do is check the symptom RIB PAIN in webmd and see what most fits your symptoms. Then see a doctor. In the mean time try ice 10 min. every hour OR heat the same way OR alternate ice and heat if that works better. Take ibeprophen like Advil -as directed -if you are able to take that. Best wishes for a easy recovery.
Thanks alot I'll definatly will have to try that!
