Ribs Hurt When I Breathe?

Answer

People often experience pain and their ribs hurt when they breathe. This can be symptomatic of a heart attack or it can be the result of a lesser problem such as a stitch in the side after running. People who play sports or have fallen recently may have an undiagnosed rib fracture. Pericarditis is an inflammation of the sac around the heart that can cause pain in this area. Costochondritis is another potential cause as it can cause an inflammation of the connecting cartilage or the rib itself. Pain from pleurisy occurs when inhaling as it compresses the inflamed pleural areas around the lungs. Swelling in the costal cartilage is called Tietze syndrome and will also cause the ribs to hurt while breathing.

Hi, Ally. It does sound peculiar why you should experience this sort of pain. Usually, this sort of pain occurs where there is a fractured rib, so I will advise you to have it checked

yes it can hurt. One day i was jumping on a trampoline ans the next day my right rib cage was hurting. It was very hard to inhale and exhale. It helps if you put an icepack on it.
