You : You may have torn a ligament. Ligaments don't show up on routine x-rays, so the only way to "see" them is by having an MRI of your ankle. Unlike bone, ligaments receive a poor blood supply, so they take a long time to heal. If you have a little tear and have been walking around all this time on it, that could explain why you're still having a problem. I would encourage you to get an MRI and see what's going on with your ligaments. Good luck! ...Read more

I got hit on the inner thigh and sustained a pretty bad bruise, after about three weeks, the bruise is gone but now I have a sore hard bump there?
Hematoma...: What you describe is a hematoma. A hematoma is a collection of blood, usually clotted, outside of a blood vessel that may occur because of an injury to the wall of a blood vessel allowing blood to leak out into tissues where it does not belong. A large hematoma can sometimes take a couple of months to resorb, and rarely may need surgery to resolve it. ...Read more
I sprained my ankle a week and a half ago. Today a lump on my shin appeared. It hurts to touch and is about 2 inches long. ?
Without knowing if: ...you injured your shin at the same time, I can't tell you if the lump has anything to do with your ankle sprain. Bruising & swelling of the shin are particularly noticeable since there's so little "padding" between the shin bone and the skin. If you get more bruising or lumps on your shin or spontaneous bruises any where else, you should seek medical care. ...Read more

I hit my elbow extremely hard yesterday and now it has begin to swell, its bruised and it feels like a knot formed. Is it fractured?
Unlikely, but: The only way to be sure is to get an examination and xray. Pain would be very significant.

A week ago i injured my shin during mma. Might of been a kick. Had huge bruise and pain. Now bruise going but left with a lump. What is it?
Probably hematoma: Most likely it is a hematoma, especially if it is slowly getting smaller. Some muay thai fighters that have knobby shins from kicking hard objects over time -in that case the shin bone actually begins forming bony calluses due to the abuse - similar to the large knuckles some fighters get from punching. Always ice a bruise as fast as you can after training, and put an ace bandage over it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Knot: Ankle sprains can cause more than just ligament injury. Sometimes tendons in the same area can also become injured. Tendon injuries can lead to conditions known as ganglionic cyst. As ganglionic cyst mature they change from a soft spongy type of structure to a smaller hard structure. Sometimes they will clear on their own while others will require medical attention. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I was in the garden a week ago and felt a pinch on my pinky toe......a week later it is still swollen and has had the pins and needles feeling?
Sounds like bite?: Certainly seems possible that your toe has been bitten by some form of "critter" which has obviously not left many clues except ongoing swelling with paresthesias. Your best bet is to see a physician who can get a good look at the swelling and toe to determine whether or not this is something that is likely to respond to antibiotics or something else. ...Read more
