In brief: Serious

Sounds like you have a compartment syndrome.
This means swelling in your lower leg compressing the nerves thus contributing to the numbness. This could be so serious as to be thrombophlebitis. This is a very serious condition. Can lead to blood clots. See someone immediately.

In brief: Tarsal tunnel issue

Tarsal tunnel syndrome (with numbness and tingling in the foot and ankle area) can be caused by hyperpronation ("flattening of the foot arch") due to tight calf muscle.
