Primary care: Would see your primary care first. If there is significant pain the X-rays should be repeated. Some fractures don't show up immediately after the injury, but after 10 weeks will be visible. Your primary care can then make a referral to an orthopedic surgeon if needed. The numbness may just be from the injury, can take six months to resolve (traumatic neuropathy). ...Read more
