Exclamation spitting blood after snowboard accident

hi
today i went to my local ski resort to snowboard.
we were just hanging around in the park and doing some kickers.
but at the middle of the day we started doing some spins on the biggest jump, and i managed to catch an edge at the end of the jump as i was performing a fs 5, i lost control and landed on my back. i had problems breathing and couldnt feel my back for about a minute, then i started to feel my back again and breathin more normally. but i started spitting some blood, and kept on spitting blood all day, not as much as at first but it kinda scares me. i havent got any pain in the rest of my body, but im still spitting a little blood, and i have problems taking a deep breath.
i dont know if this is suitable for a snowboard forum, but has anyone experienced the same? and could it be dangerous?
i wasnt really scared by landing on my back, but i got a bit freightened when i started choking up blood

Go to the hospital immediately. You could have internal bleeding.

Your health is super important. Remember that ER's are 24 hours so time of day doesn't matter. Coughing up blood blood is serious bussiness. Get yourself checked out dude.

The hospital won't be any closer in the morning. Seriously, go get checked now. Coughing/spitting up blood usually means internal bleeding, unless you busted your face, which it doesn't sound like you did.

Get checked out, buddy. Or at least get on the phone with a doctor and explain what is happening.

i'd get yourself checked immediately if you're having palpitations or shortness of breath, let alone coughing blood.
listen to these guys.
