question about sprained rib

Posted by gman16

Ive been diagnosed with sprained rib.As such,I have a stiffness that comes & goes in my left chest/arm.There is a very tender spot between 2 of the ribs that hurts when prodded.The doctor has said that since this is a muscular problem,it wont show up on x-ray.Ive been on an anti-inflammatory for about a month now,but upon going back to the drs. today to check the progress,was told it may be another 2-3 weeks before these symptoms are gone.Are these normal symptoms for rib sprain?
