Re: Bruise causing Leg Numbness

Bruising usually causes internal swelling secondary to trauma. That swelling could sometimes cause impingement to a nerve causing the feeling of numbness or tingling. If it persists much longer it might be a good idea to get it looked at. If a nerve is impinged for long it could be damaged beyond repair.
