I fractured my fibula just above the ankle 8 days ago & chipped the end at the characteristic "ankle bone." Is a strange burning sensation normal?
Don't kno what a- -characteristic "ankle bone " is, but if it the medial tip of the tibia, it means an external rotation injury, first 2 go is the medial ligament, or avulsion Fx as U describe. Next with further rotation the anterior tin/fib ligament goes, more rotation =fibular Fx above the joint. This is unstable & needs attention, surgical?

6 weeks since sim broken fibula and ankle sprain. Still have some pain, swelling and numbness at fx site. Normal? Still have cam walker
