Just fell down the stairs 3 hours ago, must have

Just fell down the stairs 3 hours ago, must have been 5 stairs. I had my bag on my shoulders and back. My shoulder joint hurts like hell and my hip joint too. But the pain is now changed to total soreness. My shoulder joint hurts like mad before it was just the muscles just below the shoulder on the arm. And my neck has also started hurting. I wanted to know how long should I wait before going to the doctor? And do any of the symptoms show any kind of internal injury? And yes it hurts when I take deep breath, turn slightly sideways like leaning, or if I laugh. Does it indicate rib injury?
I was wearing a sharpish locket when I fell n think it might have hurt my chest.

Hi my 3 year old daughter fell down a flight of stairs. I was holding her hand and she pulled away from me and rolled down and landed on her side. She had her winter coat and boots on and rolled down 12 steps indoors. She cried right away for about 5 minutes. I picked her up she is able to move all her limbs and there is no bleeding and I didn t feel any bumps on her head. This happened 4 hours ago. I kept her up for an hour and checked her again every hour since and she is still able to move all limbs. Is there anything else I should do? Should I bring her in to the hospital?

Hi, I fell down a flight of 13 plaster stairs this morning. I was holding my 12 lb baby in my arms. The baby is okay we both went to the er and they did a ct scan of my neck and xrays of my back and legs. No findings. I am very sore, I have brusing already on my spine , tail bone, shoulder blades, arms, butt, knees and legs. I am wondering why I would have started vaginal bleeding now 12 hours after the fall? I am not due to start my period for another 10 days. I had a c section 4 months ago. Do I need to go back to the ER?
