I am sorry you are in pain. I have used meds like Darvon for my bone met pain in the past. I found my pain was to bad for the over the counter medications. I did try using a heating pad and that seemed to help a bit at night. But that was only temporary. I would suggest if the pain is bad to consult with you oncologist. There are pain management teams at cancer centers maybe he can refer you. Having a rib met is very difficult as your body is in constant motion. I know how awful it can be Hugs to you.
I hope your pain stops soon, you are in my prayers.
I wish you the best
