Massive bruise developed on calf .... worried

Had Crohns 15 years, in remission last few years. Low b12 of late but developed nagging leg pain a few weeks ago and horrified this morning to see a dark bruise covering almost all the back of my calf!
See gp or just one of those things?

If you didn't knock your calf to get that bruise I would definitely see the gp!

I bruise easily and often forget when or how I got a particular bruise but half your calf you'd remember so I'd get it checked out.

It could be a burst blood vessel..I'd get it checked, don't want to end up with a blood clot....

30 plus years and counting with UC/Crohn's!

While my experiences may not be what everyone has had- I feel it is worthwhile to share any and all experiences that may be beneficial to others.
