Trying to decide if I need to go to the doctor. I have a wicked pain in my rib cage area but know its not a broken rib. Just trying to figure out if its worth a doctor trip. Hurts like hell and can barelly lift the baby. Its been about a week of dealing with it but it has not improved. Could it be a pulled muscle for that long? Or a tear? Its driving me nuts and ruining my sleep but I HATE going to my doctor takes way too long.
