Scarring on nerve: The fact that there is numbness described leads me to believe that there is nerve compressed. After 11 weeks from an ankle sprain, pain should have subsided unless as part of the healing ligament, scar tissue formed and adhesions may have developed and are now compressing the adjacent nerve. Get your ankle examined properly. An mri/ct would probably be best to examine the soft tissue. ...Read more

Nerve compression: Depending on the heel height, your foot can slide forward even in a wedge and in some cases can keep pressure at the top/tip of the 2nd toe.

To alleviate this you can try a lower heel or consider use of a ball of the foot pad just behind the ball of the foot to restore the transverse arch. You can also see a podiatrist for options. ...Read more

Symmetric numbness affecting all the toes, often making the toes feel "wooden" or "like balled up socks, " or "swollen" (without visible swelling) can be a sign of a kind of nerve damage called peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy can be caused by a large number of conditions, but in developed countries the most common condition is diabetes. Other things that can cause peripheral neuropathy include infections, vitamin deficiencies, and hereditary conditions. Other things that can cause symmetric toe numbness could possibly include problems affecting the spinal cord or blood vessels.
Because many of these conditions can get worse or result in permanent injury if not detected and treated early, it is important to get the problem checked out. Starting point could be a primary care doctor (family practice or internal medicine) who can determine if neurology consultation is needed. ...Read more
