Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

If you can't think of any instance where your rib may have cracked, you should see your health care provider to make sure nothing else is wrong. A physical exam and scan can let you know more. In the meantime, get rest and don't lift anything heavy or engage in physical activities that could make the pain worse. Keep us posted-
