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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Low ankle sprain : It sounds like you are recovering from a low ankle sprain. The pain you experience in the front of the ankle is most likely your anterior talofibular ligament(ATFL) which is still healing. It can take weeks-months to fully recover from ankle sprains depending on the severity of the injury. Rest, ice, compression and elevation is the best nonoperative treatment for this. ...Read more

I have a foot/ankle sprain that hasn't healed after 3 months no fracture i'm worried what's wrong?
Have it evaluated.: Swelling may last a long time following a foot or ankle injury. An x-ray can show if there is an underlying fracture. The x-rays may be falsely negative initially in cases of small stress fractures. You may have a soft tissue injury if it is just a sprain and may have damaged the muscle, tendon, or ligaments in the area. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
