What are the symptoms of a broken rib?

Broken ribs can cause severe pain in the back and chest area. It can also cause extreme pain when trying to breathe. Broken ribs normally are only serious if a lung is punctured.

If you have been injured and you have shortness of breath and pain in the rib cage that worsens when you push on it, you may have a broken rib.

There is pain associated with a broken rib, as well as difficulty breathing. If you have had a hard hit in the area that is sore it possibly is a broken rib. See a doctor right away because you could have a collapsed lung from the punctured rib.
