I've never had any broken ribs but my mother did and it did hurt to breathe.  Here is what the National Institute of Health has to say about broken ribs.  Hope this helps you.

No, you don't need this on top of everything else- I have never broken my ribs, so can't tell you what it feels like, but do get it checked out Karen if you feel they might be. Let us know.
