Ok, I have had some bad lower back pain from an mistake during a spinal tap, but yesterday I cracked a rib (second one down, right side, in the back, about 2 in from my spine) and it hurts a lot. And I remember a lot of pain after the spinal tap mess (I had to lay flat for a week), but I think this might hurt more. I can't sleep; even breathing hurts.Admittedly I also pulled many muscles..

Suggestions?
