Patient

Q: Hello! So earlier, I was standing on a chair and tripped on my shoelace. My calves smashed into the chair in front of me, sending at first shooting pains up my legs, then when I stood up I could've sworn my legs were broken. My right leg was very weak, and I could hardly stand on it. This was about two hours ago, now I have a large bump on my right leg. I feel fine now, but I just wanted to assure that I'd be okay? I've heard that weakness could mean nerve damage, so I was concerned about that... thank you!

Symptoms:  Bump on leg, shooting pains, weakness
