I have a sharp stabbing pain in my rib every time I laugh, cough, sneeze or even take a deep breath. It even hurts if I try to sit up really straight. I assumed it was a bruise, but it's been 6 days and it hasn't gone away.
Should I go to a doctor? I assume they'll just give me painkillers and tell me it will be a few weeks. Is there any good reason I should go (I don't have a GP, and with the inauguration it seems unlikely I'll get an appointment within the next 5 days)?.
