I was lifting boxes and something popped really loud and made a tear sound also on my upper back on the left side behind by rib. And it hurts so bad if I turn or take in deep breaths. Should I go to the ER or just wait it out and take care of it my self? I have no insurance either so I can't go see a Dr at a Doctors office. I can't afford it right now. Even if I am just laying or sitting it keeps putting sharp pains back in forth to my front rib and to the back rib on the left side. Is it a pulled muscle or did I fracture a rib?
