Tripped Up Stairs Shin
I tripped on stairs and my leg went in between the stairs hit the bottom my shin pretty good. Sever swelling and pain no bruising. What could it be?
A Bruise: Wait a few days, the bruise might be on a deep layer next to the bone, and it takes a while for the blood to make it to the surface to see. The blood might show up not where it was stuck but lower due to gravity effects and it might not bruise at all, swelling alone can occur after blunt trauma. ...Read more

Depends: Shin trauma is a most painful injury. You have my sympathy. Time to healing depends on the severity of the damage, with fracture being the worst (approx 6-8 weeks) & bruise being least (approx 1-4 weeks).

I fell down the stairs 3 months ago & my shin is still tender and bruised and bumpy. Why is it still like this?
Bone close to surfac: I'm assuming you bumped your shin on a stair edge during the fall. There was likely some deep bruising, possibly even a hematoma, kind of like a pool of blood deeper in the tissue than an ordinary bruise. Hematomas can take a long time to go away. There may also be inflammation which can take a long time to resolve. ...Read more
I fell down the stairs and now my left shin really hurts. Its elevated with ice and a large bruise is forming. I can walk/limp. What did I do to it?
Bad bone bruise: The shin normally has a thick layer of skin, then periosteum (thick bone cover), then bone. You gave it a hard knock, bled under the skin and got inflamed and lots pain. If u can walk, it is very unlikely u broke anything. So continue ice, elevate, switch to heat after 48 hours, mild analgesic as neede for pain. Oh, and why did u fall? Poor lighting? Don't let it happen again, you hear! ...Read more
I missed the last step on stairs and fell. I hit my shin on the pavement and its tender and swollen. What should I do?
Apply ice: If the injury occurred less than 24 hours ago then apply ice for 5 minutes 4 times daily for the first 48 hours. Ibuprofen otc can be used to relieve some of the pain and inflammation.

Fell down a flight of stairs over 5 months ago and a rather large bruise on my shin will not go away, and is still hurts to apply pressure to why?
Periosteitis: The shin is unusual in that it is a bone which is extremely close to the overlying skin, not padded by muscle or fat. Direct injury to the shin may produce inflammation of the outer lining of the bone called the periosteum. Less frequently, this could represent a stress fracture or hematoma. Rarely, an underlying tumor may be brought to light by a trivial injury in the same area ...Read more
