Thanks for writing to us.
Due to the impact of the stairs it seems that you have suffered a soft tissue injury of your anterior abdominal wall. Usually adequate rest, hot fomentation and mild pain killers take care of the symptoms in 7-10 days.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
