I am in bad shape now as have a fractured 4th rib and it is right at the breast area and at the Right side under my right arm. I had a horrible fall and also have a bump on my head and bruising on my head and a frozen right shoulder and lots of other bumps, bruises and scrapes and so my fibromyalgia is in a big flare up!
But my friends are sending me lots of funny E-mails and even though it hurts to laugh the Emerg. Dept. Doc told me to hug my pillow. Then when I laugh, cough or sneeze or move the wrong way it cushions the pain jabs from the fractured rib. xxxxoooo's Otherwise I am surviving and using lots of ice, pain rubs, and herbal teas, etc. to ease the OOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWEEEEE'S
