My cat has extremely sore back

I think my cat Nikita fell and injured her back. I let her outside last night for about an hour. She has an obsession with bugs, and I had the outside light on, and of course the bugs attract to the light. I suspect she may have tried jumping to catch a fly and fell down the deck stairs.
When I let her in, she acted strange, but this morning she is moving very slowly, and hisses and moans when I try to pet her back. She didn't use her litter box at all last night, drank some water this morning but isn't hungry.
I don't think anything is broken as she moving around and went down the stairs, but she definitely is in some pain. I am positive she wont let me pick her up right now.
Am I being a bad mom if I just let her be for a day or so before I rush her to the vet or should I go right away?

Thanks for any suggestions,
Laura
