I just read your comments. At the hospital, your condition would probably
not be considered serious as potential patients are treated according to
how badly they need medical assistance. I think perhaps a visit to your
family doctor might be a better plan and see what your family doctor suggests. Good luck. Eve.
You could just have a bad contusion, or you could have rib fracture. I've had some crappy E.R. docs, too. Did they do an Xray at the hospital? If you choose to go back to the hospital, you may want to go at a different time so you don't get the same doc, or go to a different hospital. I also agree that going to your personal physician is a good idea. If they took an xray, you can also go to medical records and get the xray report...they'll probably charge a few bucks
An urgent care facility is also something to consider. Hope you feel better soon.
