Last week (5 days ago) I hit my shin very hard on the dishwasher lid when it was opened. It has never stopped hurting. Only thing is that it doesn't just hurt where the injury happened. It hurts in a 5 or 6 inch area now. Just to touch it lightly, makes it hurt badly. Also, on the inside of my ankle it is very blue, like maybe the bleeding from a bruise drained downwards b/c of gravity.
Only thing, my shin doesn't look bruised at all. It's not black or blue. You really can't even tell there is anything wrong with my leg by looking at it. It is swollen a little. It hurts my shin to walk on my leg, and it hurts my shin to move my foot. Just to lift my jeans up to look at my shin hurts. It really hurts just all the time, but more when I move. The pain today is also starting to move to the back of my leg. Now, at night, my ankle is sore too.
I don't think I have cellulitis, as my skin doesn't appear hot, and it's not red.
I'm also pregnant. Please help. It's painful
