Hi there!

This could indicate nerve or vessel injury/ compression. I would suggest getting it examined by an orthopedician to rule out fractures, dislocations or injuries to soft tissue structures. Meanwhile I would suggest giving it adequate test and avoiding extreme movements.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
