Holly Madison is in a world of hurt on "Dancing With the Stars."

A representative for the reality star says she began feeling pain in her rib area last week while rehearsing the samba for the ABC dance competition.

Madison saw a doctor on Thursday and was prescribed medication, publicist Steve Flynn says. Madison will rest when she can and expects to dance on Monday's show.

A star of the E! reality show "The Girls Next Door" and four-time Playboy cover model, Madison replaced Jewel at the last minute after the singer suffered fractures in both legs during pre-show training.

Rehearsal-related injuries are abundant this season. Nancy O'Dell was forced to drop out after tearing soft tissue in her knee. Steve-O skipped a show last week due to a back injury.
