What is the cause of body pain?

I fell down the stairs earlier today, went to er and they said nothi g was broken, but iam having a real hard rime sitting or even moving. The nurse practicioner said i didnt break anything but when she was putting pressure on my ribs it hurt tremendously in the top. I have been using ice pak then heating pad then ice pack, what else can i do. Also i took two t3 which isnt helping at all with the pain.

Hi you have injuries on your ribs and are feeling difficulty in sitting or even moving. In my opinion , with this kind of picture you might have fractured a vertebra in dorsal spine. I would suggest pain killers , and an X Ray of Dorsal Spine before any thing else.
