In brief: It is NOT normal.

A very rare, but potentially dangerous and disabling condition following an injury is called regional pain syndrome (or reflex sympathetic dystrophy) which is a disturbance of the autonomic nerves.
If not diagnosed and treated promptly, can lead to a lifetime of pain. There are other causes of a cold foot, like if a blood vessel was injured, but please go back to your doctor and get it checked.
