In brief: See your doc

Got examined? Make sure you didn't get some nerve damage from the injury.
Get re-examined, if you already were, or get examined for the first time, if you hadn't.

In brief: See a doctor

Your description could be something serious so go see a regular doctor for further evaluation.
If you had a recent trauma, this could be the cause of the bruising and numbness. Numbness due to trauma improves over weeks and some can be permanent.
