Slipped, fell. Blacked out, breathless. Bruise on calf, back. Back pain, hurts to breathe. Suggestions?

I slipped and fell down 3 stairs yesterday. Winded myself to the point I was gasping for air, blacked out when I fell. I have a bruise on my left calf muscle , left elbow and middle of my back. Ever since I have continuous pain in my upper back... It hurts to do absolutely anything, even to breathe sometimes. What could be wrong withy back?

Looks like pretty bad injury. You need an immediate consultation with doctor. You need to rule out any of the vertebral fractures before it becomes worse.
