    1 weekend ago i fell and banged my shin hard on a log.
    My lower leg Got swollen fast, and on the middel of my shin Where the impact was, it was a bit more swollen.
    A couple of days ago, i could feel it being a bit warmer where the impact was, and somme purple marking around.
    But also around my ancle, it has started to get purple. -looks pretty Halloween!
    Went to see a doc today, was tested, and no inflammation, and told the purple areas was blood poolings.
    Was told to monitor it close the next days

    Any input would be Nice

    Think the bit in the middle about the doctor was the medical advice mate.

    Trust the doctor and monitor it.

    Dont trust the dr,they do make mistakes, if in doubt go to a drop in centre in the next few days and get a second opinion if still concerned.

    My advice is don’t listen to the medical professional you’ve seen, listen to a load of numpties on the internet instead 🙄

    This.

    FWIW it’s fairly unlikely you’ll actually see a doctor if you go to the walk-in.

    That sounds to me like cat AIDS, which it is possible to get if an infected cat had urinated on the log recently..

    The only thing to do is cut the purple area open with a rusty bl;ade and encourage maggots to feast on the fleash..

    Go to A&E and sit, with the drunks and other people who should be seeing their GP’s, for about 6 hours.
    Doubt they’ll do owt different but you might get an X’ray, enjoy!

    If you ring 111 they will send an ambulance. The ambulance crew will then kick you in the shin, steal your wallet and laugh to each other in polish (unless the daily mail are wrong?). Otherwise take some pain relief, get it elevated above the level of your heart and drink some beer. If its not eased by tomorrow, ring your gp and get an appointment for later in the week.

    Well from where I’m sitting it looks to me that what we have here is a classic case of Malingeropharmacolexicography. Take 2 paracetamols 4 times a day and if there’s no improvement after a couple of days let me know.
