Brief Answer:
show to an emergency room immediately

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

You need to show in an emergency room as soon as possible. As this could be a sign of ischemia and if delayed may lead to loss of the affected portion.

It looks more like a compartment syndrome, but i am not able to reach the cause, as per the history given.

Don't delay anymore.
