Cat doen't want to move

My cat usually wakes up at 6 a.m. and wants to eat immediately. Today she just didn't move. She has been hiding under my bed for hours now. Yesterday as I closed a door I think I hurt her. I didn't notice she was there (which is not normal because she moves like crazy the whole time and it's impossible not to notice her) and closed the door against her. It must have hurt but she didn't meow. This morning I thought she might have something broken, so I took her in my arms to examine her. She didn't want me to touch her and then jumped out of my arms again without a sound, which makes me think nothing is broken, because once she had a broken bone and she would meow every time I touched her.
So what has happened to her? She also had a fight with another cat yesterday. Could she be depressed? I touched her lips with a cookie to see her reaction (she always jumps onto my lap when I'm eating cookies) and she still didn't move.
I am extremely worried.

thank you.
