About three months ago I bruised my shin by bumping it against a piece of wood. I had great pain at the time, much more than I expected for the type of injury. I still have a small lump at the site, it is sometimes discolored, and aches. Some days the pain is much worse than others. Can anything be done for this? I can't believe it is still a problem for me!
Wow, it's been 3 years since you asked the question. I hope you you're going on this site. I also bruised my shin (right above my ankles) with a piece a twig that slapped the bone part. It only hurts when I place pressure on it. It's been 3 months now and it's still there. I tried to massage it the other day, but now the bruise spread! I think a darker discoloration. Once a nickel size now a dollar coin size! Why hasn't the bruise gone away? And did it make it worse?
