Hello,

This is my first post. Just looking for some insight into a probable broken rib.

It happened while doing some light jiu jitsu sparring. The injury occured during an attempt at an "armbar from the guard", I got stacked and twisted. All of sudden my bottom inner rib (ie, the one right next to my solar plexus) felt like it flipped up and over. It hurt and sent my chest muscles into a minor spasm.

This rib flippy feeling occurs whenever I do any serious leg lift exerise or crunch movement. But I can do pretty much everything else (lifting, plyo, running) including deep breathing, sneezing, laughing etc without any pain.

I assume I have a minor break but everyone complains about breathing pain which I don't have.

Any insight or similar experiences?

Thanks for any and all help.

Could be cartilage damage where your ribs attach to your sternum. I would recommend going to the doctor to get a rib x-ray series (although it is often inconclusive and I am biased toward x-ray). You may have to take it easy for a while. Just my two cents!
