I had a fall Wednesday, I was at the computer desk and trie to back up a little in the chair and for some reason it tipped over and landed on its side with me still inside of it. Not a big deal except that I hit my upper chest on something. I have a circular bruise to prove it and it hurts really bad. Moving hurts a lot but even just laying down it is painful. It is interferring with my sleep. I had hubby buy frozen peas and used it a couple times with no help. Vicodin isn't helping either. I really don't want to see the doctor, I can't afford an extra visit this month. Anyone have any suggestions?
