Can't tell if I hurt myself

Jul 10, 2017 10:58 PM

Or if I just hurt. I'm not sure if I should get my leg looked at. Does anyone have any suggestions on knowing when to see someone and when to rest?

If there is severe swelling, bruising, and if the area is hot to touch I would see someone. What happened? Make sure to ice and elevate the area.

I agree with Valdeen but also if you will feel better to just get it checked out. Then that won't hurt . Hope you feel better soon.

I walked. More than I should have. Had a few dicey steps. I'm prone to getting sprains from sleeping though, so it isn't as far fetched as it sounds and wouldn't be the first time it happened. I think it might be a little swollen but there's no bruising, but there was no trauma to cause bruising. It's definitely been hot to the touch but has cooled down after ice and rest. I'm still finding walking abnormally difficult.
