I slammed into a wall at 25-30 miles an hour, am I ok? because my ribs hurt, like really bad?

I want to know if my ribs are OK and if I should take it seriously, I don't want to pay just for them to tell me to put a lidocaine patch on it and go home :/.

    You may have fractured a couple of rib if you wore your seatbelt

    This is better than your face hitting the dash or going through the glass

    There's not much can be done with cracked ribs apart from rest. Mild painkillers may help.

    The time for concern is if they had been a compound fracture - but since youre typing on here, it's obviously not one.

    I did the same thing a few months ago [go kart racing] ouch.

    So, even if you have cracked a rib, they would x-ray it, tell you it is cracked and send you home as they don't have a treatment for this. Save your money.

    'Course, where I live, I don't have to pay for this service. Nobody does. We call it "health care". We like it.
