Fell down stairs 2 days ago on shin. Bruising, lump & tingling in my foot. Ice & elevating. When should I see a dr? I'm concered about tingling. Thanks

Fell down stairs: Tingling is usually a sign of nerve irritation, happens often with injuries, especially when the foot swells up and there is pressure on the adjacent nerves or damage from the injury. Absolutely, see a podiatrist or an orthopedist asap, get examined for any potential fracture, tear of the tendon/ligament, the sooner you decrease swelling and immobilize your foot, the faster you will heal. ...Read more
