Hurt knee, swelling, numbness, itching inside shin. Should I see a doctor?

Hi, I hit my knee in the front outer side in the softer spot very hard on the corner of a bed last Friday. When I woke up on Saturday my whole leg hurt from my hip to my ankle. After 10 hours in heels on my feet at work my knee and ankle were very swollen. Sunday, my shin bone felt numb up into my thigh. The pain is slowly getting better and the swelling is down, but the numbness is still there and now I feel like there is itching inside my shin. Is this something that I should see a doctor about?

Thanks for writing to us.
The swelling and numbness in the area of injury is likely to be due to a soft tissue injury in the area. If there is no considerable pain on weight bewaring then a bone injury is not likely.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
