upper right ribs got compressed extremely tight now it won't stop hurting
Rib pain: sometimes midback, sometimes also breastbone.
My friend came and hugged me n squeezed
really hard and I felt and heard a popping noise n its killing me
How do I relieve the pain?
Tell your friend to stop killing you with kindness! He's sprung a rib. It's probably not cracked, though it could be. The usual sign is pain with breathing.
It's one of the conditions that we chiros love to treat. It usually, though I can't promise you always, gets better with just a few treatments.
Meantime be careful, use ice for pain control.
