Numbness in chest.

I injured the upper left side of my chest in martial arts. doctor said the xray was clear but he thinks its a cracked rib. he said once I can sleep comfortably, I can go back to martial arts. A few days later It felt good, the pain was significantly reduced and I was sleeping well. I went back, and 30 mins after that class, the injured area became totally numb. there seems to be a small lump in the numb area, It doesnt hurt much but its been numb for about 3 days now. from sternum to armpit.
