Customer Question

On September 4th I was at a corporate work event with my company. We went to a Go Cart racing place. I was hit by one of the racers and got a pretty big bruise on the inside of my left thigh. The steering wheel column is between your legs and my left leg hit it pretty hard. The bruise went through its stages from purple to yellowish green until it went away but there has alway been pain in that area. There has also always been a purplish pink discoloration. About 4 days ago the area where the bruise was/is started aching. The ache goes all the way down my leg. My leg also feels tingly. The purple discoloration is not as visible but still hurts to touch the area. Not sure why the ache is starting now.
Could there be a blood clot?
Need some advice.
