There are several factors to consider in your situation. If you were released to light duty and re-injured yourself, the injury may be related to your prior injury. On the other hand if you injured a different part of your body, you may have a completely new injury.
Your best bet is to report the injury and seek medical care immediately so that a medical professional can perform the necessary diagnostic tests to determine if this is an aggravation of the same injury or a new injury.
Be informed. Be aware. Be prepared.
