11weeks after an ankle sprain been going to pt and for the past 2 weeks i've been having numbness in my foot i feel it the most when laying down. What is the possible cause?
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
