I fell down the stairs two days ago and now

Patient: I fell down the stairs two days ago and now my shoulder and rib cage hurt, it’s not terrible pain but the ribs feel like pressure inside my whole rib cage and I have shooting pain from my shoulder blade down my back on the left side. Immediately after the fall my left hand was tingling and my legs hurt but they feel a bit better now. I have a 2 hour journey to work carrying a heavy laptop. Is it a better idea to work from home? And should I just take ibruprofen?
