I fell off my bed this morning and onto the back of my head/neck... my chin was pushed forward into my chest and all the weight of my body went at an angle onto what I'm thinking was C5 (about 2 vert. above the prominent one)... now my chest is heavy and deep inhales are relatively painful... SCM muscles on both sides are swollen as well, making swallowing difficult and whole throat and chest feel swollen- also a challenge to tilt head from side to side or look over my shoulder. Pectoral muscles are tender as well... Slight dull headache around base of skull and also behind eyes. Head feels a bit fuzzy. Think it's just pulled muscles or should I be more concerned?
