Is it Normal to Feel Tingling and Sharp Pains After Getting Hit on Your Boob Implant?

Trauma and Breast Implants
It is unlikely that you have caused an implant rupture of your implants. You likely do have a muscular strain or bruise. Some ice and rest should allow the area to heal and the pain should resolve. If you continue to have pain or any noticeable differences, you should consult with your plastic surgeon who can perform a physical examination and who may recommend a MRI to further evaluate your implants.
In all likelihood you did nor rupture your implant but with unusal discomfort it may be a good idea to get them checked out.

Accident after Breast Augmentation?
Although it is not possible to give you precise advice without direct examination, I doubt that there was enough force/trauma to cause rupture of the silicone gel breast implant. It is much more likely that you have suffered a muscle strain. this will likely improve with time, rest of the area, and the use of anti-inflammatories.
If not, follow-up with your plastic surgeon who will be in a better position to advise you.
Give it a little time
you may have a simple bruise. give it some time - if you notice a change in shape or a hardness in that breast, that would be something to see your doctor for. hopefully its just a soft tissue bruise. your implants are quite "fresh" and they typically are very robust.
