Hi..kapilverma.., since the ct scan of brain is normal, and xrays were normal suggests no major problem.. the other injuries will heal within few weeks.. this pain in the chest may be injury to costal nerves, hence it will pain severely.. but if the pain is associated with inspiration expiration, then need to take one chest x ray to rule out rib fracture...

Take care..
