Kick on the arm causing severe pain, weakness, bruising. Fracture?

Hello, I was at school today and this boy in my lesson was stood up and i was stood up so he started swinging on the table and he kicked my arm really hard. I laughed at first until it went dead and it started really hurting. I went to the medical to get some ice and it was all red. Later on in the day, the redness came off and now nothing is there but my arm feels really weak and bruised and every time I press it, it really hurts. Does this mean I have broke a bone?

Thanks for posting your query.

From description, it seems to be soft tissue injury over your arm. Generally it takes 10-15 days to heal.

I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance to rule out any bony injury.

In the interim, you can take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin to reduce pain and inflammation.
Avoid lifting and rest well.

Wishing you good health
