Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
How old are you?
Any swelling in the foot or ankle?
Thanks for the details
There is a possibility of damage to the nerve in ankle region
It can happen with traumatic injuries
You should use Ibuprofen and apply Capsaicon cream over the ankle area
You should also have physiotherapy
This will get better in 2-3 weeks
Please do let me know if you have any other question
It seems like a sprain of the ankle along with injury to the the adjoining nerve
Sometime a hamstring tendonitis can also cause such symptoms
But it usually settle in a couple if weeks
If done please leave a 5-stars feedback rating
