I Broke My What??

In other news....I was asking my neurologist about some numbness that I've been experiencing on my left side, and his diagnosis wasn't exactly what I expected. Here's the play by play recap:

Doc: Where is the numbness exactly?

Me: Right here, along the lower left side of my rib cage

Doc examines the X-Rays carefully

Doc: Well, that's probably being caused by this rib fracture you have here

Me: What the?!

He was surprisingly casual about it. I guess in relative terms, it was the least of my worries, and probably was lost in the shuffle. I think they call that triage...
