I am a young woman who was injured last week in a fall. An object fell and remained pinching my calf muscle to the ground for a short while before it could be removed. The back of my leg was pinched between the object and the ground. Now, I have a large bruise, approximately hand size, and in the center of it is a round area about two inches in diameter. This center area is completely white (not even skin color) and has lost sensitivity. If I push on it, I can feel it, but when I just run my fingers over the skin I feel nothing. If it is touched and I'm not looking I cannot feel it. Should I be concerned about this? Immediately after the accident my leg was sore; however, now a week later, my leg feels as if it is returning back to normal. All except for the large white spot. When I squeeze the area it does feel as if it is a little hard inside. Should I see a doctor? I'm hesitant to go because I have no health insurance.....
