It sounds similar to raynoud's. See if warmth helps as a starter and see your primary doctor or podiatrist. ...Read more

6 days post ankle sprain, my foot ankle and bottom of leg go numb. Especially if I stand on it for a whilst. No fracture or torn ligaments only sprain?

The tearing from those ligaments may cause swelling (mild to severe) and the swelling may impinge on the surrounding skin nerves. This may be causing the numbness, especially when standing because fluid naturally builds up lower with gravity. Hope this helps, good luck! ...Read more
