What are the symptoms of peroneal nerve compressed? Can it occur from ankle sprain? Fibula possibly moved and pinched nerve.

Nerve impingement: Unlikely, that the fibular bone moved to pinch a nerve. The peroneal nerve (superficial peroneal nerve) is located in the skin and can be impinged through swelling resulting from an ankle sprain. The bone, ligaments, muscle, tendons are deeper than the skin, but the swelling associated with injury can cause shooting pain, burning, tingling, and numbness. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I have a lot of pain on the outside of my ankle. Now on the same leg, back side of the thigh I have pain off and on. Could this be a pinch nerve?

I have a lot of pain on the outside of my ankle. Now on the same leg, back side of the thigh I have pain off and on. Could this be a pinch nerve?

Yes! Most Likely!: What you are describing is most likely sciatica. Sciatica is pain caused by a herniated disk either in the lower back or the buttock. When it affects both the ankle and the back of the thigh it is probably involving both the L5 (lumbar), and the s1 (sacral), nerve roots. You should see your physician, as further work-up may be needed. Conservative treatment can be very effective, so don't delay. ...Read more

Lumbar epidural: Reduction of pain in the back as well as the lower extremities is a good indication that the epidurals have started to do their job. Numbness, tingling sensation, pins and needles and weakness in the extremities may not subside if there is nerve damage. But it is hoped the pain in the back and legs will improve. Often need more than 1 or a different type of injection to obtain the desired effect. ...Read more
