Symptom #2: Numbness

Breaking bones in your ankle is definitely something that will get your attention. Such traumas can have quite an impact on the patient overall and there may also be other damage caused in the surrounding areas. This can include damage to blood vessels and nerve endings.

While part of the injury is likely to be causing considerable pain, the patient may also be experiencing numbness elsewhere in the area. There is a good chance that this will be down to damaged nerve endings. Depending on the severity of the damage, the patient will still often make a full recovery and regain all sensation in the area.
