Out of no where, I was fine yesterday.
The most strenuous thing I did was load 2, 5 gallon gas cans in my car.
Deck it hurts.

It's also possible to break a rib without too much effort.  I feel like pain would present earlier.  Muscle and connective tissue pain is frequently delayed.

Aspirin is not really helping.

Aspirin is not really helping.

In this case, you'd probably want some tylenol.  It's less of an anti-inflammatory and more of a modulator of pain versus aspirin or ibuprofen.  

 

If it's muscular, you should be looking at only a few days of acute pain.

Alternate hot and cold (heating pad/ice pack) on the rib in question; might help with reducing pain if there's swelling involved.

This, cox inhibitor. Reduces inflammatory signaling and reduces clotting cascade.
