fell off on top of a raised section, as a result my chest hit the edge of the raised mound of earth before my weight was taken by my hands which were lower down. Bit of an 'ooooof' as air forced out of my lungs and some discomfort but finshed the ride.
followign day hurt (a lot) if I coughed sneezed or laughed but this settled down over the next few days. There was never any visible bruising.
I went to see my GP after a week as it wans't really getting any better - still hurts if I breathe too deeply reach my arm over head height or cough quickly. He squeezed my chest and said he didn't think it was broken and to just keep my arm moving and give it time.
So, a week+ later I'm still unable to lay on that side, and the above symptoms still apply - there's two 'sore points' about 8 inches apart on my left rib cage - one at the bottom and one just under my armpit.
Do I just give it more time or look to get some physio?
Not riding is getting to be a bit of a pain
