Yes, you should: It is possible to injure your lung after something that seems to have come from a shoulder injury. You would need an exam to determine whether there might be a rib fracture or dislocation and probably an x-ray to be sure the lung is not partially collapsed or your collarbone injured from the impact. Good luck!
