i was asked to help clean up a trailer lot with lots of fiberglass insulation and i have been having breathing trouble but its getting better day?

I hit leg on a trailer hitch 10 days ago. It hurt was swollen and bruised but I could walk on it. Today my ankle is swollen and very bruised. It is starting to throb and hurt. Should I be concerned?

To remove all doubt, have the leg examined immediately. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
