    Got a cracked rib, what can be done about it? Just sneezed a while ago and well I almost fainted with the pain.

    Think it's the old crack from an old snowboarding injury.

    What did the old doctor say about the old injury?



    he said "probably"

    It would help if you were strapped up, ie bandage round your ribs.

    I went to doctors 5+ yrs ago for my broken rib, this is a new one or couple. Anyway I manned up and played Saturday made it 10 times worse. Just popping pills for the pain now.

    When did you do it?If it was recent then you should have had exercises to do and plenty of Co Codamol!

    Only way to treat it is conservatively, ie just manage with pain relief. Regular analgesia every 4 hours. You can take codeine, paracetamol and ibuprofen at the same time, although sometimes good to take 30/500 cocodamol then 2 hours later the ibuprofen. Don't wait for the pain to get severe before taking pain relief. HTH

    Oh and obviously stay clear of ibuprofen if you have stomach ulcers, severe ashma or IBS.

    i love that suggestion

    another good one would be to break something else to take the pain away. Break a finger, arm, leg the list is endless!

    If you only fractured it last Thurs then I am not suprised your in pain!Or do you mean this is when you sneezed?Make sure you do your breathing exercises young man
