    Numbness after Sprain

    I sprained my ankle about two weeks ago. The hospital told me it was a grade 3 sprain and took a chip off the bone when it stretched. Two days ago I awoke and my entire leg from my knee to my ankle on the side of the sprain was numb. I can tell that it is being touched but feels like it is asleep. At a follow up appointment with my ortho yesterday, he kinda just dismissed it. It is still numb today. Is this something I should be concerned about? What causes it? What can I do?

    RE: Numbness after Sprain

    Did you ever find out what was causing the numbness? To me that doesn't seem like something to just shrug off, but I'm also not a doctor. Hoping you're back to normal and doing well!
