There : There may be blood or air under the skin or near the bruised area. This could be making a sound when you walk or move around. The numbness is probably due to nerve damage/inflammation. It would be a good idea for you to visit a medical professional for an evaluation of your injury and treatment if indicated. Good luck.

Hematoma: May be resolving squishy hematoma under the bruised area.
