Sore shin, not bruised after falling, redness, feels warm. Normal?

I fell during a tug o war at our office picnic. Landed on my right knee and leg. Leg is bruised below and to the right of the knee and the knee is still a bit tender, but healing . My concern is that my shin is sore, the skin is not bruised but is a little red and warm to the touch. Feels very tight; I m trying to keep flexing and pointing my toes to stretch and slept with it elevated a little. The soreness isn t bad, but the warmth is bothering me because all the skin around the sore area is a normal temp.

Hi Katy,
Welcome to heathcare Magic!
Whwn didthe injury took place, usually these type of injuries reasonably subside in 3-4 days.
If you are having a problem beyond this period then you might be having a crushed/pulled muscle, fractured bone rarely can remain uattended some times so in that case you should see a doctor.
Wish you a great health!
