I hit ankle two weeks ago still swollen and painful now my little toe on same side is starting to feel numb what is wrong with ankle and toe?

Hit ankle: The lateral sural cutaneous nerve passes the ankle and apparently you may have damaged that nerve. It can supply sensation to your little toe. The more your ankle swells, the more pressure on that nerve, the number your little toe. Diagnostic ultrasound (dus) or MRI testing might help to visualize damaged nerve tissue. ...Read more
