In brief: Varies

A calcareous fracture can potentially not have any neurological issues at all.
The two main ways s calcareous fracture can have neurological issues is if the fracture displaces and pushes on a nerve, or if the degree of swelling associated with the fracture causes nerve damage, such as in a compartment syndrome if the foot.

In brief: Heel fracture

A fracture of the foot and ankle can lead to nerve impingement.
A foot and ankle expert can establish a diagnosis of nerve impingement and a nerve conduction test cam confirm the diagnosis.
