Patient

Q: I fell off cement steps and hit my shin very hard,it has a good scrape on it but no noticeable swelling or bruising, however if I try to touch the area it brings tears to my eyes it hurts so bad, it is also hard to walk or stand for more than a minute because of the pain. On the right side of the scrape my shin has gone completely numb, I can't feel a touch. What could this mean? Should I go to a hospital?
