Hello Luann,
Welcome! I am fairly new to the website, too.I've only been diagnosed for about 3 weeks. I've been fortunate in that my symptoms have been on the lighter side for the past few years and maybe that is one reason it took so long to diagnose. However, I fell in my house about 10 days ago. I didn't hit anything on my way down but fell hard on my right side. The pain has been pretty bad so I went to see my doctor 3 days ago. I thought maybe I had broken or bruised a rib or two. The doctor thought maybe I had bruised some cartilage. Before the fall I had been having pain under my ribs on both sides, mostly on the right. It feels like the same pain only worse. She,the doc, told me to take 600 mg of Ibuprofen every 6 hours. It hasn't helped much at all. I think the fall just precipitated the original pain. Frustrated!!

It sounds like you bruised your ribs,and unfortunately they take a while to heal.

You might try a hot water bottle or heating pad,to help relieve some of the pain,but you also may need a stronger pain reliever than ibuprofen.

I have had the rib pain you speak of before your fall,and the only relief I got was from opiates.

If you have not used them before you may ask the pharmacist to give you the ibuprofen with codeine added.


I would have thought the doctor treating you would have offered you something appropriate.Their are not many non-prescription pain meds that are effective for sharp and constant pain.


You will have to protect and nurse the area for five or six weeks to get back to normal.

Though I wish I could say normal is pain free,but hopefully it will migrate out of your ribs!

Thank you. I will ask the doctor about Ibuprofen with codeine. The pharmacy here would just send me back to the doctor.

Hey Karen44,

Sorry to hear you had a fall and hurt yourself. Rib pain can be tough. Maybe Lubkos is right....you might need something a little stronger if the ibuprofen hasn't helped.

As much as it's painful, remember to take deep breaths to avoid lung problems from shallow breathing. I hope you make a quick recovery. x

Do you have a wrap, like a corsit of sorts? I got desperate enough to buy one at walmart. I went through rib pain, its disableing. I paid 30.00 for mine, it was worth the tab. I could not had made a long road trip without it.
