I got a direct blow to my shin bone. there is a large long bruise along the bone. i can walk but have a constant throbbing.
when the area is touched it is very painful. it happened to the same area before and it was not rite for almost 3 months
afer. should I get it seen to? its been 3 days since the incident.
I think you should consult an orthopedic surgeon and get yourself examined. You might need some x-rays to rule
out the presence of any fracture, although it looks like soft tissue injury to me. You?ll need some rest and
anti-inflammatories to take care of the pain and everything should be fine after somedays. I sincerely hope
that helps. Take care.
