I was knocked off my feet into the air and

Patient : I was knocked off my feet into the air and landed face down on the grass in a bellyflop. I twisted my knee but about four days after that I started getting a pain in the lower right back of my chest. Upon waking the next day the pain was all over my right chest and I was not able to draw a deep breath. I was considering going to the ER but decided to wait a bit longer (no insurance) by the end of the day - the pain was almost gone. When I went to bed and latex down the pain came back and now is terrible again on my right side. What could be causing this? When I draw a deep breath it hurts
