Stiffness in neck, arm pain days after receiving stitches and staples post a fall. Cause of concern?

I slipped in a bathroom, fell and hit my head on the corner of a wall 3 days ago. I received stitches and staples to close a 4 cm laceration and did not lose consciousness . Today I am experiencing a very stiff neck and pain in my left arm , localized in the upper outside area of my left arm. Is there anything I should be concerned about or I am likely just stiff from the fall?
