I hit my shin really hard two weeks ago. After a day or two I noticed swelling and discoloration around my ankles. It has been two weeks and the discoloration and swelling in my ankles seems to be getting worse, not better. When I hit my shin, could I have damaged a major vien or something causing blood to pool around my ankles?
