Nauseated after hitting inner shin, leg still painful to walk. Could it be fractured ?

I fell a day ago and hit my inner shin. Immediatly i felt nauseated and had to lay down for 10 minutes before being able to get up. My leg is still painful to walk on, but mostly when i put pressure on my heel. I also have an old ACL/PCL injury (which was repaired) to that knee , which has started to bother me as well. Do you feel it could be fractured?

Thanks for writing to us

It could be soft tissue injury,broken bone or ligament injury.Without ray it is difficult to differentiate fracture from others. I suggest you consult an orthopaedician for clinical examination. You may get Xray /MRI under his/her supervision.
Meanwhile avoid putting weight and rest well.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
