Fell down from stairs, back of head and chest hurts. Suggestions?

I fell down a flight of stairs at home. I was knocked out. My husband said that my eyes rolled back. He try to wake me up by slapping my face, pour water on me but it didn t work. So he pinch my nose shut and i started breathing . I was out cold maybe about a minute or two. The next day, the back of my head hurt and the right side of my chest also hurt. When i take a deep breath and bend down, that s when it start hurting. Also, when i put pressure on my chest it hurts. Not sure if it s my lung or heart. Please help.

The fact that you lost your conciousness and have headache and other pains is a cause of concern. You must immediately see a doctor. Sometimes the injuries may get complicated over time and some may even present later. There are chances of injuries in the head and lungs as per your symptoms. You should not waste time and c a doctor.
