Hit my head, knot, bruising on palms, headaches, soreness. Suffered a concussion?

I fell in the street and hit my head. I was able to put both hands down to somewhat brace myself, but I hit my head. I had a knot which went down some and bruising on my palms. 2 days later my neck , back, upper parts of my body started hurting. I feel very so sore. I haven t had any headaches . Just the soreness from where I hit my head. Did I suffer a concussion? Did I receive a whiplash? Why am I so sore?

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
Trauma could have led to hematoma or a soft tissue swelling. this can cause soreness and pain which can last for 7-10 days. Mostly it recovers by self and you just have to give it some time. It doesnt appear to be whiplash or concussion.
If it is hurting a lot then you can take acetaminophen.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
