I slipped on ice and now i have neck pain with a slight difficulty breathing

Yesterday I slipped on ice and landed on the back of my head. I am not sure if I blacked out or if it was the percussion that got to me. Today I just dont feel like myself. I have neck pain with a slight difficulty breathing, and a headache . Should I go to the ER? I don t want to worry my family.

Such cases can be attributed to concussion but if you feel you blacked out it is best you be safe and go to the ER to rule out chances of brain bleeding which can be fatal if not treated early. Take someone's help and go to the ER. Be safe.
