Bruise won't go away

I fell at work almost three months ago and hit my right upper arm towards the back, near my armpit ( on a trash can.. Lol ) I had an immediate shock and couldn't feel my arm for about 2 minutes. It still hurts, the immediate coloring was a dark purple. It hasn't started to fade at all- now it's a dark brown and still hurts. Same size. I don't have any blood disorders that I know of. Please help!

I would have imagined that it would be gone by now so I understand your concerns.  You may have crushed some nerves and they can heal it just takes time, sometimes a lot of time...
When was your last blood work done?  And your medications can affect healing times.  Do you have a doctor?  
Does it hurt just to barely touch it or pushing on it?  Obviously I am not a doctor however those are the things you need to ask yourself and inform your doctor if you have one.
