This is not related to lyme...but has anyone here had fractured or broken ribs? I took a major fall off a chair yesterday, falling about
4 feet and landing on the side of the chair on my left lower ribs. My boyfriend took me to the ER a few hours later, but they said I'd be there for hours and hours before I'd even get taken in to see a doc, so I left. Have an appt with my primary doc tomorrow. It is really painful, though, and I couldn't sleep, feel a little nauseous when I lie down. Any advice? I would take some major painkillers (which I hate taking) but I don't have any.
Thanks - sorry for the off-topic post.
