Pain In The Feet Until Swollen After Experiencing A Collision?
So when I played futsal, I was hit hard by a dry bone and caused swelling, after a week the swelling got smaller but there were parts that stood out with bruises and pain, then ended up. Though there is no collision in the thigh and ankle. What is this caused? Pain in the groin up to the knee and ankle only occur about 3 days

Swelling, bruising, and pain after a collision are normal because they are the body's normal response to external pressure. Depending on the strength of the impact and the condition of your body at that time, the impact can cause mild to severe tissue damage. In mild collisions, only damage the skin tissue (abrasions), or damage the small blood vessels in the skin area, so that it will look bruised, and nervous structures, so that it will feel painful. However, in a harder impact, it can damage the structure of the bones, blood vessels, and nerves around it, but does not damage the external structure, so that the fractures or cracks are not visible from the outside. In addition, there are also cases of very violent collisions (usually vehicle crashes / accidents at high speed), can cause open fractures, which are accompanied by large injuries, and massive bleeding.
Because the innervation of the foot originates from the spine (on the lower back), the pain you feel (in the thighs and ankles) may be a temporary effect due to the impact, but it can also be a complication due to damage to other structures (muscles, bones, etc.) on your feet. I advise you to check with an orthopedic doctor / bone specialist so you can do a more complete examination and if necessary appropriate treatment. Common checks for cases like yours are physical examination, and radiological examination (x-ray / CT scan / MRI) to see the structure inside your feet.
Things you can do right now at home are:
Rest your feet (affected side) for a while. If it still feels painful, reduce the use of these feet to support. If the pain really interferes with your activity or rest, you can take anti-pain medication that has a green logo (sold freely). Cold compresses on swollen areas Danger signs that you need to be aware of are: severe pain that does not improve with anti-pain medication, feet become very swollen, discoloration of the skin becomes pale or dark, and cannot be moved. In this condition, immediately take it to the Emergency Department at the nearest hospital. Thus, hopefully can help.
