I haven't cracked my ribs, but a few people in my family have.
Resting is the best option really. And, maybe if you can wrap it?
I don't know about pain though. I'll ask them and I'll let you know.
Hope it gets better sooon!

I have not myself, but I know some friends who have.. I agree, try
wrapping if you can, and definantly rest.

Maybe also either a hot or cold pack? Lie with it on your rib cage, or a warm bath?

It also might be a good idea to call your doc and see what he/she has to say?

heat pack? or a hot water bottle would do the same job.

I think that you should mainly rest, but you could always try a heating pad. Wrap it like the others said. You could also take a really relaxing bubble bath, that might be nice.

Try doing slow breathing exercises like yoga.. but also the warm bath should work..
