Had a fall. Nosebleed, pains, stomach ache, diarrhoea. Does it require immediate medical attention?

My daughter was riding her horse on Saturday when it fell and rolled over her as she lay on the ground (fortunately a soft, tilled arena). She was seen immediately by paramedics, and other than a nosebleed, she didn t have any complaints. About 24 hours later she started complaining about miscellaneous aches and pains, which I would expect. This evening, though, she started complaining that her stomach hurt and she has diarrhea , which she reported to me was red. Unfortunately she only told me this after she had flushed. She hasn t eaten anything that I would expect to cause a red color, but she did have blood on her tissue once about a week prior to the accident, while she was constipated. Should I take her to the emergency room?

Hi welcome to HCMForum. Your daughter fell and rolled over from a riding horse and there was a nose bleed. there is possibility of a concussion type of head injury. the overall body pains after 24 hours is a commen feature.
Any how i advise you to consult a neurosurgeon for diagnosis and treatment. you may have to take MRI to exclude head injury.
Bleeding through anus with the history of previous blood on the tissues suggest the possibility of piles or a fissure in ano. so it may not be an urgency.
Wishing for a quick recovery. thanks for calling.
