Back, palm and head injury, muscle soreness, headaches, tightness in abdomen. What is wrong?

I fell down the stairs yesterday and landed on my back and palm. I hit my head. Yesterday my coccyx and hand hurt all day but today I have a bad headache and muscle soreness in my shoulders and my abdomen is very tight and painful, as if I did a workout yesterday. Is that all from the fall even though I landed on my back?

thank you for consulting HCM.
The symptoms you have mentioned are due to the injury you had as you fell on your back you have strained a lot and your muscles will got contractions so that may be the reason for your pain.But coming to the headache you need to have a ct scan as the headache may be a sign of raised ICP.As you mentioned you have tight and painful abdomen you have to have an USG scan too to rule out any internal injuries without delay.Thank you.
