Yes. Go to a doc.
When I got dumped and stepped on earlier this year, I should have gone to the doctor but was too stubborn.
I had broke my nose, and since the horse stomped right on my chest, who knows what was broken/cracked/bruised.
I went to tighten my saddle to rope a few days later and my shoulder or collarbone or something in there gave and I couldn't use my left arm. Thank god my horses are automatic branding horses.
If I would have went to the doc, I would have known my limits. And saved myself 2 weeks of pain. I wouldn't sleep without taking melatonin for the first week.
I went to a chiropractor after and had several ribs out of place, and many other things not where they should be.
I still get flashbacks of it when I'm on a touchy horse.
Not a good two weeks for me.
