Light headed and severe neck pain after an injury

Two weeks ago, I was injured during my hockey game. I slid awkwardly head first into the boards and right after, i had severe neck pain and chest pain near my ribs and sternum. It got better and doesn t hurt as much anymore. Ever since that accident though, I have been feeling light headed and groggy quite often. Could these symptoms be related to the accident and what should I do about it?(14 F)

Yes it is quite possible that is true. Do you experience giddiness, difficulty in seeing things, ringing sound in the ears. You may need to visit the Neurosurgeon/Orthopedician to be safe.
