how do you control muscle spasms resulting from broken or fractured ribs?
I fell on ice, down two or three stairs, landed on my side. Pain when I breathe (left side only) tender to touch at rib just
inderneath left armpit, and also tender bottom of rib cage. its now been two days- first day was painful but tolerable, as
with most of 2nd day, toward end of 2nd day mucle spasms started (after I coughed once!) now the chest muscle spasms fairly
often. Will this taper off? How can I control them? note: I have found that if I can engage my ab muscles that the pain is
helped, but after a while the lower back starts to get sore. Please Help!
