How to tell if breast bone is broken,&what to do about it?

The only confirmation can come thru an Xray. Symptoms will get worse and you can cause lung damage down the road. A professional can palpate the injury and make a reasonable diagnosis, but only an X-ray will tell you for sure.

How much pain are you in? If a lot, you need to get to the doctor or emergency room and have an xray done. They will be able to tell if it is a broken bone or even a fracture (which can be just as painful). As with a cracked rib, there is not much to do for the break. Rest, limited lifting if any, and periodic xrays to watch the healing process are necessary.

Did you find out if your breastbone was broken? I hope that you got checked out. If you are still in pain, please get checked out. I hope that you are healing well and feeling much better. Please let us know if you had something that was just undetected. If you did have a hairline fracture, how did you make yourself comfortable. What were the doctor's suggestions if that was the case. Please let us know.
