Do Talus Fractures Cause Your Foot To Tingle And Go Numb
Talus fractures: In general talus fractures do not commonly cause the foot to tingle and go numb. However, if a substantial fracture to the talus occurred then an adjacent nerve may be injured and result in the above symptoms. It is also possible that unrelated nerve symptoms are developing such as tarsal tunnel syndrome, mortons neuroma's or even spinal nerve impingement. Consult a doctor for diagnosis. ...Read more
A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing.

5 years ago I fractured my talus bone in 3 places and when I'm sat down my toes go numb and my ankle starts to hurt is this normal?
No: No, I would not say it is normal and there are multiple potential causes. Some talus fractures heal uneventfully, others have serious long term sequelae. Tarsal tunnel syndrome is just one condition that can cause similar symptoms and may be more common in someone who has had such a severe injury as you are describing. Thank you for your question. ...Read more
Can fallen arches cause pain in talus? My elderly dad has pain on the top of his foot near talus. He had an x-ray; no fracture.

I fractured my talus 9 months ago, and my foot still hurts during up and down motions. What could be causing it?
Bone or soft tissue: A number of things are possibilities.

At 5 weeks after injury it may be difficult to properly align the talus but it can be done. ...Read more

Ankle Injury: If you have an avulsion fracture of the talus it depends on the size of the avulsion. Not seeing your xray it is tough to recommend treatment.

The orbital floor is commonly fractured, leading to numbness. However, if a plate was placed to support the floor, it might be shifting and impinging on the nerve. Get it checked. ...Read more
