You may have ruptured a blood vessel or ligament/tendon.  It would be beneficial to see an orthopedist for testing.

I forgot to add  that  every so often it will go cold and semi numb could this be nerve related?  and if a tendon or ligament was ruptrued could this cause the joint to to be deformeed like stick out a little?
