Hi!
You have probably developed a hematoma or local collection of blood. This needs to be treated with cold compress, leg elevation and an anti-inflammatory. Also, you may need to take some medication to reduce the swelling. It is best to consult a doctor, get an X-ray of the ankle joint and shin bone (to rule out possibility of a fracture) and get the right treatment. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care!
