This is a crazy question but can you break your leg and still walk? I took a nasty fall off the bed and hit my lower leg really hard on the dresser, it's bruised from the point of impact all the way down to the bottom of my ankle. It's still swollen and this happened 8 days ago. It hurts really bad if anything brushes up against it. The bruising is still getting worse. If I had a digital camera I would take a photo of it. It looks really really bad. It hurts when I walk. The strike point was half way up my lower leg on the shin bone. Even my ankle is swollen with really heavy bruising. I would have gone to the Dr. but I don't have insurance and can't afford a small break in my bone. If I have to I will go get it x-rayed but what can they do if it's been 8 days?
