Lower back pain, head injury, headache, sore muscles, back pain, painful. Help?

On saturday i overdid the weights at the gym. I always do my age in lifted 130 lbs with my legs 65 times..then decided to do it again. I was on green tea and moving like a maniac. Sunday, this time on green coffee, I moved huge house plants, moved the steam cleaner up and down steps and fell down wet carpet steps (just 2) while i was steam cleaning. I fell, hit m y lower back, fell back and hit the back of my head on the steps.
I was so proud of myself for not breaking (will be 65 in a couple of weeks) monday and tuesday i was sore as _ _ _ _ . took 6 advil a day. I was sure it was just the work out. since the sorest part was my butt muscles...I suffered waling up the steps. I thought if i had hurt my back, the pain would be more on my spine. anyway..more it is 3 days and seems the pain should be gone if it was from lifting too just checking the web for signs an bruising etc.
thanks....rosemary chasey

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain that you are having could be related to a soft tissue injury due to the fall. These are not worrisome symptoms and are likely to subside in next few days.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
