    it IS painful. that is, if it was indeed a "bruised bone." I'm asking this because awhile ago I had what felt like a bad bruise on my elbow, but there was no visible bruise. It was right on the part of the elbow where it's very boney, so that's where i got the idea of a bruised bone, and i THINK i've heard that term somewhere before. also, even now (months later), i think that spot is still a little sensitive if i really press on it, compared to the other elbow.

    yes, i agree. there is such a thing too..as a bruised bone. some times i think some things can be permanent, or really hard to heal. i still have extreme sensitivity in my certain parts of my knuckles thats weird..

    bruises dont show up sometimes when it really hurts. i hit my knee once on a door and all of a sudden it felt like the end of the world. i could barely walk for like 2 days and nobody understood why because there was no mark/bruise/swelling.

    hmm... interesting. bones DO have blood vessels running through them i think, right? so, that would fit with them bruising in some way.

    Yes, bone bruises do exist but firstly you have to understand what is a bruise?

    A bruise is an area of skin discoloration. A bruise occurs when small blood vessels break and leak their contents into the soft tissue beneath the skin.

    There are three types of bruises:

    Subcutaneous -- beneath the skin,
    Intramuscular -- within the belly of the underlying muscle
    Periosteal -- bone bruise
    Bruises can last from days to months, with the bone bruise being the most severe and painful.

    Bone bruises are most common on areas where the bone is close to the surface (if you understand what I mean) e.g. elbows or hip bone. Which should explan your elbow injury; it could be a bone bruise.

    thats technically not true, the bone itself is not bruised but its periosteum, which is a dense membrane composed of fibrous connective tissue that envelopes the bone

    Maybe im just splitting hairs

    That's true I know what you mean but they're nick-named bone bruises so draw whatever conclusions you want from that!
