Aaah, squeeza, my mistake. I was actually tinking of your heroic CPR attempt. If you tried to do it properly the hard pushing with extended arms also tugs on your muscles, though maybe more on a different group of muscles. I'm always struck by how in TV they show people doing CPR with such tiny little movements that they couldn't possiby save anyone --- not enough pressure to even wake a kitten.
Now, if HE squeezed YOU, there a possibility of a cracked rib. From my experience of having had several broken and cracked ribs after my accident, they hurt sarply and horribly for some time. But they seem to have given up the way we used to treat them, with strapping of plaster to give them support, and my orthopod, at least, seems to leave them alone. And after months of pain, rather suddenly they began to stop hurting so much and seem to have healed.
However, serious miseries, like Synic and The Fixer, are incurably painful
