Im 47 in decent shape.##I have had a very dull pain in my left pectoral muscle for about three weeks. I dont remember having any huge impact/accident just had strained abit moving some equipment around. The pain was worse the next day. It hurts sharply when i cough. It seem to have gotten better a week or so ago. It seems to have worsened again. I have the broken rib sensation that when I rise from a lying position it pulls tightly in my chest. The pain point seems to have moved a bit from where it was originally which was a bit lower on the pectoral. It is sore/tender if i poke my finger straight into it. I saw a GP briefly last week adn he was pretty sure it was a broken rib. The slightly changing position of it and the lack of incidence for the injury makes me a little sceptical.
No fever. Have had little cough. Redness not really. GP did a little invesitgation with Stethoscope.
