As I was learning how to bunny hop last night, I took a hard hit to my left shin with the pedal. It hurt way worse than any other pedal slips I've had before, and the pain seemed to linger. When I got home, I pulled up my pant leg and discovered blood dripping down my leg and some huge swelling in two spots on my shin. I bandaged it up and iced the area for a little while, then went to bed thinking it would go away.
Well, I woke up this morning and it still hurts. It's still swollen, though not nearly as much. I can walk around and bike on it, but if I move my ankle around a lot or flex certain ways it hurts a little on the swollen spot. Is it possible that I may have a slight fracture? It's certainly bearable, I'm just wondering if I should lay low for a while...
