the left side of my ribcage is bugging me. Every time I exhale, or do anything to contract muscles near there (flexing abs, etc) or even lifting my left arm it hurts. Oh, and I have a cough, so whenever I contract to cough it kills. It's been like this for awhile, feeling like they got bruised (and I don't know how that happened in the first place).

But recently (10 minutes ago) a coughed a nice hard one, and now it's worse. So what gives? Do I just have bruised muscles in that area from coughing way too much over the past couple fews, or possibly pulled one?

I doubt I have broken/fractured a rib (even though my bones apparently break like nothing) because it would hurt much much more.

Anyways, I just panic over nothing a lot.

Well you should be able to figure out whether its your muscles or a bone. There ain't much muscle around the ribs area really so it might be your bones. Sound bruised but you may have a small fracture or something. It is a fine line sometimes.

You need to let out a massive fart.

that's actually very close to reality... my bet would be that you have some air that's bugging you.. and yeah, you DO have to let out a massive fart.. or go to the restroom ... quick

Actually I farted a couple seconds after I posted, and it hurt to fart as well. Because I has to contract to get it out.

I needed to do that last week, felt like I had a hernia....

As for your chest, go see a doctor if its been going on a while, whenever I've had pains around my ribs its usually because I slept awkwardly or hit them, something that tends to go away quickly though.

Breathe as deeply as you can, like you're breathing air down into your intestines and stomach.

It'll hurt, but it will speed up the process.

Also, change positions often. Vary sitting and standing.

i had the same problem
you could have bent your back in some way and that it pulling on the muscles in your ribs so this puts a lot of stress on them.
you should get it checked out.

Pleurisy? This is an infection of the linings (parietal and visceral pleural membranes) that line inbetween your lungs and rib cage.

Can I ask what type of pain you feel when you breath in and out? If it is a sharp, piercing pain, that could be it.

I'm only a 1st year medical student though so I don't really know much about the respiratory system yet. It shouldn't be anything to do with your heart I imagine anyway.

This is probably it. No joke. Vigorously poke the area between your belly button and your ding-dong (assuming your a dude) while keeping you anal passage open. This always makes me fart. Sometimes you can even drum on that area and create cool rhythms and fart-melodies.

Sometimes the muscles between my ribs will cramp up and I'll have your symptoms. Massaging (sp?) it out usually takes care of it.

If none of the above works, go to a doctor. You may have pneumonia.

It's possible that you do have a hairline fracture in your ribs and you don't know it (can happen from sneezing too hard). You really should have a doctor take a look at it. Or you could, ya know, try out the whole fart melody idea too...

Could be cracked, or if it's toward the lower part of the ribcage, it could be a cartilage deformity. Get an X-Ray, they'll tell you exactly what's wrong for a nominal fee.
You know, you're probably reading this saying "Hey, I'm bored, maybe this'll be funny?"
It's not. Too bad. No, I am not refunding you those 6 seconds of your life. So :P

1st of all, how the hell did this get bumped? it's incredibly old. I think it was just a result of coughing too much, because it did go away a few days later, and I'm fine now.

As far as having blue balls, I also had that a couple weeks ago, but I solved that problem quick enough.
