How to tell if you've broken a bone in your leg or it's just bruised
Hit my leg hard last Saturday. I can walk and even do the elliptical on it. But it hurts and is bruised still. I'd go to a doctor but I'm on a business trip

bruising would be a tall tale sign. A fracture will be accompanied by more than usual or odd contusions. You probably just have a good bone cruise

If there's a crack in the bone, it's broken.

OT answer: is your vagina hurting too?

I think you prob just have a contusion and not a fracture.

Find a walk in clinic and get an X-ray.

Rule of thumb for this. If you can bear weight, it isn't broken. Suck it up Buttercup.

Don't go to the Saints former doctors.

You can break your fibula and still bear weight

In my youth I basically lived in casts, and the only times when it wasn't extremely obvious something was broken were small bones in the foot and a finger.

Kind of my rule of thumb, if it's not excruciating in the days following, it's probably not a break. Plus as you get older, things tend to linger more, I think.

You didn’t break a bone in your leg if you can workout on it. Are you 14?

Not broken.

I've seen two people in my life who didn't know they had broken bones.

Trust me, you'd know
