I broke my foot 4 days ago and today it feels like there is pins and needles in it. It is still swollen and bruised. Is that feeling normal?

Pins & needles: Can come from swelling, as pressure of the swollen tissues on the nerves can cause them to react. So can a tight cast, and there is also the possibility you injured a nerve when you broke your foot as well. Let your doctor know what you're feeling, just to be safe. Feel better and good luck!

High ankle sprains: Can cause significant damaged to small blood vessels and ligaments in and around your ankle. Appropriate casting might be appropriate. Check with your local gp/orthopod as you may benefit from continued relative rest and may need imaging. good luck.

What is happening physiologically when you get pins and needles in your foot?

What is happening physiologically when you get pins and needles in your foot?

Couple of things: It might be due to circulation where not enough oxygen is being delivered to the tissues, resulting in hypoxia of the tissues. If it is in the nerves, think injury, tight shoes, or referred pain (radiculopathy) or neuropathy (diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid issues) cause abnormal signals to be conducted through the nerves. Seeing a podiatrist can help sort this out.
