Bruised Ribs?
Tiffaniie3 posted:

A few nights ago I slipped and fell down a flight of stairs. I woke up the next morning with extreme chest and rib pains. I can not take deep breaths and I have a huge bruise on my left thigh. My entire left side is killing me. I can't walk much, nor can I lift anything heavy without feeling a stabbing pain in my stomach on my left side. I have been breathing very shallow because anything causing my rib cage to expand hurts. My back and neck are also sore.

Has this happend to any of you? Should I really go to the hospital? For somereason I dont think its necessary but this happend Friday night it is now Monday morning and I feel like the pain got worse.

I don't think the hospital would do much for you at this point. You may want to see your regular doctor for an evaluation.
