How long does it take to recover from a stressful event (attack)

Monday morning I was attacked at work (I work with vulnerable children) a child became extremely volatile and when I was removing other children for their protection, I was hit and kicked in the back, until everything calmed down I was adrenaline charged for about 15 mins.

Work have been great and send me home, but I woke up yesterday and felt like I had gone 10 rounds with Mike Tyson!, where I was physically hit, hurt a little bit but nothing too bad, but I felt extremely tired and all my muscles ached like I've run a marathon, my hands feel really weak and I'm quite emotional.

Just wandering if anyone has been through anything similar after a stressful situation and how long it too for them to feel 'normal' again.

Usually 3 or 4 days, take Ibruprofen for a couple of days.
Hope you feel better soon.
