Bruising and Injuries to Shin/Leg

So Tuesday night I was sparring and sparred with this new dude. Guy trained at another gym for a few years and just joined ours. So sparring class is first round of hands only and we keep adding on for the next 7-8 rounds. So I'm in about 2.5 mins into the round and I'm doing a good job of tooling this guy with my reach and ability for a newb to hit off my back foot and all a sudden as Iím switching stance (bc I like to go back and forth once in awhile) he throw this viousous a$s leg kick. And I'm able to lift my now right leg being my front since Iíve switch stance and check it but it hurt since we didn't have pads on. My first thought was wow that hurt, and second was if I didn't check it would have been my knee he'd hit. So at this point I hobble for a second and switch back to orthodox and lay a pretty mean 2, 3, liver shot and the round ends. Afterwards I sit out one round and then continue on thinking itís nothing. And take our No-Gi jits class afterwards as well and roll around for another half hour. Now the next morning the left side of my leg looks bad and it swelling fast. I had put ice on it the night before but didnít think it would get this bad. I go to work it hurts just a little and by lunch I can barely walk and then pain is intense. Also the other side of my leg (right side, front shin) is hurting insanely bad till the point I could barely walk. But the bruise and a Blister! Idk y itís blistering is on the other side of my leg. I was going to go to the ER but figured they couldn't do anything and it can't be broken... I think BC... idk I just don't think it can. Now over last night it hurt and I iced and elevated it and it felt better by morning. But we'll see if walking around and sitting at a desk bring that insanely bad pain again. Any help to what could be wrong here... please?!?

Vicodine is your answer. No seriously its hard to be a part time muay thai practicioner, cause the nerves in ur shins never get deadend to the impact completely. So if your gonna train with no shin pads start playing drums on your shins or kick trees like in the movies. Just kiddin

man go to a doctor, better to be safe than sorry. and at least they can give you good pain meds if it really bad. You might have a fracture, My leg got battered in rugby but thought it was probably just brusiing and played on for a while. 2 days later i still couldn't walk and the swelling not gone down - Went for x-ray and had a nice crack in the bone. Sometimes you dont feel the break and it hurts less than you would think.

I know ppl hate going to the Docs or the hospital but better than getting another kick in a week and permanently damaging your leg.
