well my advice is that if your a kid tell your parents bu if your an adult contact your doctor and he can give you some advice but if you dont want to tell your doctor then just take something for your pain and just rub it and relax for a few days but you also could have broken your ribs so i would contact my doctor if i were you
If you've already been to the doctors, then you need to get some rest and follow their instructions. If you have a muscle that is inflamed, then it's going to be extremely painful, and swollen probably for several days. Stop poking at it, take the advil that was prescribed, and alternate ice and heat on it every so often to help with the swelling, and to help relax the muscle. If in a few days it still hasn't gotten any better, then you can call them back and see what else they advise.
