I jumped off an approximately 10 meter high cliff today and my chest has hurt ever since. I feel a sharp pain when I breathe in deeply and if I try to lift something as heavy as a laptop, it hurts a lot. I think I landed in an almost sitting position, with my arms outstretched to the left and right – does this have something to do with it? I don’t think it’s been long enough since the jump for bruises to develop, but I’m definitely not seeing any signs of them yet.
Should I be worried? Should I wait a couple days and see what happens, or could it be something serious? And if so, what?!
Thanks for your help, from a very worried person on holiday.
