Stomach pain after falling on abdomen. Cause of pain?

In basketball today, I dove for a ball and I landed hard on top of the ball right in my abdominal region. Unfortunately, the girl behind me fell on top of me and further increased the pressure of the fall. Immediately after, I felt terrible stomach pains in my top left region along with the upper middle region of my stomach as well. It almost feels like the pain is moving from both spots. It is bareable but I want to keel over with pain. I m not sure if I should go to the emergency room or just lay down. Do you have any idea what could be causing me this pain, and if it s serious?

Hello, dhick0134,
Yes, I think you should be seen and examined by the doctors.
The spot where you were hit is around the spleen and it could
be serious. Bllod clots or hematoma from the trauma could
be serious. Please go over to the ER and let them check you.
Wish you well.
