Is this doctor worthy or should I wait a few days?
Has anyone done anything similar?

I've taken some pretty hefty chest hits while boarding. Last time I did it I tried to last through the pain for a week. I finally went into the doc and they started scanning me for potential fluid buildup around my heart!

Bottom line: this is the internet and we are not doctors. Only you can determine if you should see a doctor.

BTW, mine turned out to be nothing more than a bruised chest muscle. Healed up in a few weeks but it was very painful for the first two! I ride with upper body armour now...
