I'm 24 years old, male, 150 pounds. It was about 5 days ago we had a nice day so I decided to take the doors off the jeep (they aren't light) and while putting them back on when I lifted the door higher to get it on the hinge I felt this blast of pain from my left side to the point I almost dropped the door. Finally after the next few hours were terrible to the point I almost went to the er because breathing was causing so much pain. Then it seemed to start getting better but last night it seemed to be just as bad as the day it happened. The pain can be produced by rolling over in bed or a quick movement and also by pushing on my ribs. The location is right next to my sternum where my ribs start on the left side. Does this seem like a muscle strain? Could I have somehow fractured a rib or something? I would think a muscle strain would be healed by now. Going to the doctor is kind of out of the question because my doctor is on vacation until next Monday and I really don't wanna spend the money on an er visit of its not needed.
