falling apart at the seams

um....so yesterday i tore the muscles on my upper left rib cage.  i am in constant stabbing pain.  i am now on muscle relaxers and prescription-strength aleve.  i have to go back to the hospital this afternoon for a chest x-ray to make sure i didn't "pop" {doctor's term} my lung.  so what, pray tell, did i do to inflict this injury upon myself?  a particularly challenging yoga pose?  carrying my new coffee table into the house?  attempting to hang new blinds and curtains?  nope.  all things i've done in the past week with no pain whatsoever.

i sneezed.

welcome to my life.

Feel better hun! I had a back/neck/shoulder injury in 1998 that never healed properly and I still have problems from, so I know how annoying and painful these things can be. Feel free to email me if you need to vent or want advice or whatnot.

Oh my word. I did this when I was young and on the swim team. Every now and then to this day the muscle will begin spasming right up against my lungs and breathing feels like it might just kill me. I will pray for you and your lung :(
