6 days ago i had this pain in my back (felt like someone king hit me in the ribs) i thought it happened when i was surfing, fell off and my board hit me (wasnt the case).
I continued gong about my routines, surfing in the morning, lifting at 2pmish. a majority of it was fine except it hurt a fair bit when i breathed.
Then i got to my traps day. Intense pain, unable to complete x amount of reps (not because it was hard but because it hurt like hell) so i stopped and took it as 'letting stuffed rib pain go away so i can lift 100% the next day'.
I continued surfing and going about my routine.
Pain was still there except it was coming and going, 1 minute it would be fine untill it got aggrovated wich at that point thought it was indigestion, wasnt my prognosis (my mothers, lol). got to my traps day again, got 2 my second set on military presses before i was forced to stop.
Felt like someone had strapped a firecracker to my inside. I pretty much could not do anything in this kind of pain (high threshold, only go to the doctors if something is completely not right).
I went to the hospital, got it checked out for whether it was a lung clot ( it wasnt). They didnt think it was a broken rib, i insisted on a xray (so i knew for sure what is was). turns out it is muscular.
Rolling over in my sleep hurts it, any sort of motion (Except walking hurts it).
Now im stuck...
Anyone have a idea how long i should expect to be off lifting for?
Is it ok if i do stuff that only hurts it a little bit like general movement stuff, maybe running?
I was 2 weeks into bulking. should i go back to cutting?
is there anyway i can maintain my strength and stop muscle atrophy?
would it be a bad move to stretch the muscle after a day or 2 of healing?
