I tripped up a kerb and badly bashed my good leg (other has had tkr!). Thought it was just a graze under my jeans. After not much time it started to bruise and swell and was very sore. Did the usual - rest ice elevate - compression socks worn because of lymphodema. Had to see doctor for something else and showed him and he said "oh that'll be sore and bruise will spread all down your leg" - and it did - nearly all of lower leg been many shades of blue purple green red. Anyway ten days gone by and bruising still there but not as dense, but leg still little sore. What I really want to know is, would this shock cause something of a flare because suddenly my joints and muscles are crying out, feel very stiff and sore around hips back and knees and struggle to get out of chair. Get so cross with myself - hate the indignity of it all - fall was very undignified too - had just been for test drive in very nice car with very nice salesman and was trying to be very ladylike and smart - then there I was flat on my face in his showroom - how embarrassing !!😡😡😡
