I did that about 3 years ago and we didn't go to the Dr. And my back is still hurting! Go to the Dr. Soon!

He could have cracked a rib, or a number of things. The best thing would be for him to see a Dr. Are your parents home?

I would take him to a doctor.. Make sure nothing is broken.

He fell off the monkey bars so he will probably still hurt tomorrow and the next day too.
Hope he feels better soon though.

i had that, except right on my ribs, he'll feel better in about a week, thats what happened for me, and when i was in 1st grade, except it was more like a good sleep or nap would do the trick

A 12 year old boy? !2 year olds don't take lightly to crying. You should at least call a doctor!!

You should take him to the doctor soon. Just in case he might have broken something or he might just have seriously hurt something. Just in case you never know.
