I noticed when I woke up this A.M. that I had what appears to be a dent in my skin just above the right ankle no pain just seems weird it’s visible?

For example, sleeping with one's face on a wristwatch can leave a dent the shape of a watch on her face... temporarily. If worried about dents in the feet or lower legs, one's doctor can examine to see if there is excess fluid in the skin down there. ...Read more

At least 2 possibil-: Ities:
1: unlikely that you have developed arthritis, so soon, as it usually takes about 10 years, but I believe it can occur if the fracture wasn't anatomically reduced ; fixed, or if the fracture was really a bad one.

Good luck. ...Read more
