I fell a week ago and hit hard on a stump.
Slight scrape on skin, but swelling and bruising on most of upper leg. No problem walking, but nerve ending pain now starting in swollen area.Ideas on swelling control?

  1. I WAS TAKING ALEVE FOR PAIN IN MY LEGS BUT A FEW DAYS LATER MY UPPER THIGH START TO SWELL AND WENT ALL THE WAY DOWN TO MY KNEE ON MY RIGHT SIDE CAN YOU TELL ME WHATS WRONG

  2. Do not stand or walk for extended periors of time. Lie down and elevate your leg above you heart and ice 15-20 minutes. Can be used every hour as needed for pain.
