Muscular or something else?

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hi All,

I had a fall on my right hand side on 26.11.21 and after visiting A&E to get checked over was diagnosed as a soft tissue injury, possibly a cracked rib.

Since then my movement has been better and no longer on painkillers, and injury has not hindered my day to day duties. Albeit I have not been exercising or lifting.

The area however is still tender to touch, I do not feel pain when moving or getting up in a morning, minor tweaks if any.   I only really notice the pain more when sitting for long periods.  I wouldn't say the pain was really painful it's more of a awkward pain.

The location is my lower back ribs and around my back, tender to touch!

Could this still be my injury healing (how long for cracked rib to heal and be pain free) or something else like kidney related or liver related...?

I don't have any other symptoms... 

I do suffer from anxiety so always fear the worst!
