hey i got a kicked in the leg by a horse at work about a month ago. it got me on the middle of my right thigh on the side and i couldnt walk for a good 10 mins after it happened. after i could bear the pain to hobble along i kept working even though the pain was severe. i didnt get ice on it for probably 2 hours after it happened.. i rested it for a day and then went to work again... it was very painful but i just ignored it and i also couldnt bend my knee without severe pain. now 4 or more weeks on i still have pain at the site even though the bruise is almost completely gone. although thats not my main concern, my main concern is a hard lump on or in my muscle where the direct impact happened.. it is about 10-15 cms long and 2-3cms thick... it feels very hard. also about a week ago i started expierencing a strange itchiness under my skin, like a bug wriggling around, but when i try to scratch it it just hurts coz the itch is too deep and my skin where the bruise was is still kind of numb to touch. whats goin on with this leg
