Fell from horse. Coughing up blood clots. Bruised. Concerned

Hello, I just had the worst fall ever on my horse after a jump. I fel straight on my back about 12 feet down after a huge buck. I got the wind knocked out of me and made a long draining sound. When I finally had help getting up, I'm coughing up blood clots. What can this be? I do not have insurance and I'm walking but badly bruised. I'm just concerned of blood

Thanks for writing to us.
The coughing up of blood clots after an injury is a worrisome finding. You need an immediate medical attention to find out the extent of injury that you have suffered.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
