Bruise causing Leg Numbness

Hello,
I recently bumped my shin pretty hard, it has caused a monstrous bruise. I bruise easily, so it didnt cause any concern to me. But, for the last week, from the bruise down the circulation in my leg is cutting off and causing numbness, similar to when your foot falls asleep. Should I be worried or go have it checked? Thanks
