leg injury, foot turned purple
i recently injured my knee playing rugby and am waiting for the results as to what is wrong with it. it will not bend to even a 90 degree angle and is painfula nd swollen with lots of bruising. about ten days after the injury occurred, i woke up to find that the inside of my foot was purple. it looks exactly like a bad bruise but feels completely normal. what is going on?

Hello!

I would suggest you to go for an X-ray and if required MRI and diagnose if you have any boney or soft tissue injuries.

Rest your knee till properly diagnosed and do not exert yourself.

Apply ice packs and also take intermittent NSAIDs.

Take care!
