Patient :I was playing softball and was sprinting around the bases, when the back of my leg seemed to stop me. Not a big pain and not a continuous pain. I iced the area immediately and then the next day saw bruising, which has grown to a large bruise on back of leg, purple in color that extends from the back of knee to the groin area. muscle seems sore. Would this be a tear, pull or strain? Can i travel to Colorado this week?
Symptoms: discoloration on back of leg form back of knee to groin.
no pain, just sore
