I sprained my foot on Thanksgiving, and today I noticed bruising at the base of my toes. It’s just recently started feeling worse, so I called my doctor and left a message asking if I should come in (she didn’t see me originally, I had to hit urgent care because it was the day after Thanksgiving.) So, seeking medical advice from an actual doctor, just have a question about how this works.
I was talking about it to other people who all said that yeah, sometimes when you sprain something, days or weeks later you get bruising way downstream from the injury. I’m guessing it’s blood pooling down, right? But why does it wait so long? Where was it before? Why couldn’t I see it then, but this morning I can? (Thinner skin at the base of my toes?)
