Lower back hurt after falling. Stinging feeling while lifting leg. Cause of pain, stinging?

I fell off horse and landed on my back with most impact on my lower left side. I had breath knocked out but most troubling was the sharp pain in lower left side of back maybe waist high or little lower. It stung deep inside. The stinging has continued since accident 2 hours ago but horrible deep stinging when I try to lift left leg at a certain angle. Took forever to get into the truck! What on earth is causing that deep pain and occasional stinging?
