Hospital or not?

Had my first off in 4 years yesterday. I was on my hybrid and the infamous Edinburgh tramlines caught my front wheel. I went down with quite a thump.

Bike is OK apart form some minor scratches but my forearms are agony. I can't straighten them and getting a shower and socks on this morning needed some Rule V.

I'm not a fan of NHS/Hospitals/GPs/Out-patients dept's etc. Should I just sit this out to see if it is muscular pain due to the shock of my arms supporting my fall or should I go to A&E and get an x-ray?
