In brief: Broken bone

Need to see an orthopedist and get an x-ray.
It certainly sounds like there is a broken bone which is also called a fracture.

Or to start go see the Family Physician who can get the exam done and an xray ordered.

In brief: Fasll

At that age , any fall dictates that x rays should be taken.
Seem your orthopedist for help sooner rather than later.
