Strange goings on in my leg after fall...

Hi all, I fell over at the weekend and landed on the edge of our patio. It left a big dent in the top of my shin and I felt sick for a while afterwards. I went down with big thud!!

Anyway, since then if I touch the part that was dented, I feel it on the side of my leg!! It is the weirdest thing. My leg is quite numb around the area that was dented.

So, any ideas? Will it just go in time? TIA smile

Some soft tissue damage can take 6 weeks to heal fully sad

I have exactly the same thing, somehow fell against the sill on my car and have a dented part near my shin which has now become two lumps and is tender but numb in the middle. In fact it is hurting whilst I am typing this. I also felt sick at the time as the pain was so bad. Was wondering if I should go to the doctor as it has been at least six weeks

No way!! It's horrible isn't it. I'm glad it's not just me. I think I will leave it and see what happens. i would go of I was you, 6 weeks is a long time and like arrabella said it should take 6 weeks. My leg hurts in the evenings and I can't cross them anymore sad

If you do, can you let me what the Dr says?! smile
