I was wondering if anyone could give me any advice on how long an internal chest injury takes to heal up. I'll explain a little better about 1.5 to 2 weeks ago I was sparring (boxing) and took a shot right to my chest (sternum), after wards it hurt like crazy but I figured I just took a good shot. Then the following day it hurt when I would sit up. After a week I figured it healed up then we were doing takedowns and someone sprawled on me, I felt a little discomfort but when I was rolling it really started to bother to point that I can't have any weight on my chest. Any advie? Sorry for the long post btw.

Get to a hospital and have that checked out immediately. You do not want to mess around with a possible fracture or dislocation of a rib. It sounds like you've already aggravated the original injury, so stop training and get it checked out NOW.
It does not feel like my rib, because it does not hurt when I breath or even deep breaths. But thanks for the advice. I think I will visit my doctor so I can figure out what I did.
