Hi, Im new to the board and my name is David
well I didnt know where to post this so I figured in the general health would do alright. If an admin would like to move it, feel free i just need to get this answered.
I recently was playing basketball and some soccer on friday (about two weeks ago) when i was told by a doctor i was suffering from shin splint. I did some research and thought to myself that it could be shin splint. The next day which was on a sunday, I woke up to see my whole right leg swoll. And by this I mean up right under my knee, my whole shin and some ankle and foot. Thats when i thought the doctor may have been wrong. Now its been two weeks and the swelling has gone down alot. Thanks to my mom who has put warm water on my leg and a lot of wrapping. Now the problem is Im still on crutches and i do move my knee and foot around a bit to keep it from future blood clog you can say. I still have this bump that seems to look like a spider bite on the inside of my right shin that hurts if pressed. Recently little blood has came out and some yellow liquidy stuff may not be pus.My question is what is this bump? and why hasnt it gone down. I feel better every day but the lump just stays there. If you all would like some pictures ask so I may then post them asap.
ps: the doctor said it would take three weeks for me to heal, and im on my way to my third week. He also said he was gonna inform me of some exercises for me to do meanwhile and I guess he forgot and never really got to me
thanks to everyone who reads this.
Sorry so long people.
