Hit on the ankle, later sudden pain in back with redness, swelling, tenderness. Cause?

Today while exercising I hit the inside of my left ankle against the machine as i was getting off of it. It hurt really bad when it first happened and I thought that s going to leave a bruise . The pain was manageable after that. I went to work and can came home and cleaned. All of a sudden the pain was back and pretty unbearable. When I checked on it there was no bruising , just a red mark and swollen, and tender to touch. Curious to know what could be causing the swelling .

It can be anything from a soft tissue injury to a small fracture in the bone.

Injuries become more painful after a period of time as the inflammation sets in.

You are advised to get an x ray done, take some antiinflammatory, keep your leg elevated.
