3 weeks ago I was mountain biking and fell off my bike. I hit my shin but didn't cut my shin. My shin did not bruise, but my ankle was sore, the spot I hit was sore and I had a bruise on the side of my foot. The blood was pooling down to the foot area. Anyway, now 3 weeks later I have about a 3" spot on my shin with pitting edema. I have alittle edema on the side of my foot where the bruise was but the worse spot is where my shin hit the frame on my bike.

I don't have insurance so I can't run to the Dr. but I am wondering why it is pitting?
