Boyfriend wants space after blowout fight... this has never happened before. Help?

Anonymous
Me and my boyfriend have been dating semi-long distance for 3.5 years (we live about an hour away but manage to see each other at least once a week). Lately my boyfriend and I have been having dumb little arguments, but way more often then usual and he seems to be less patient with me/irritated by me. On Wednesday night we got into the biggest fight we’ve ever had and said some really low blow stuff to one another which also turned slightly physical by shoving one another away (Prior to this we have NEVER laid hands on each other). Afterwards we cried together and cuddled to sleep. The next day I asked to speak after work and he said he didn't think it was a good idea and I should just leave. I tried reaching out later and he didn't want to talk about anything, although we both apologized. I asked if were were breaking up and he basically said he didn't say that, but it was a possibility and he would like to work on things but he doesn't think it would be easy so he doesn't know and he just needs a few days. Its now Sunday and I still haven't heard from him. Is he going to break up with me? I told him Id respect his space and it would be tough to work on but im willing if he is and that I didn't want him to stay if he genuinely doesn't want to work through this. I have been making myself sick to my stomach convinced he is 100% going to break up with me. I dont know what else I could do or if its a loss cause in general.
