Re: Nerve damage via impact?
I would think it's possible. I got hit above the ankel with a softball a few years ago, and it was totally numb for well over a year. It still is numb to the touch, but it's slowly getting better - I think. I could run my finger nails over the area and not feel a thing. I had x-rays, which showed that nothing was broken, and when I recently asked my doc about it, she said I probably just have some superficial nerve damage, which might not ever go away. Not sure if yours is the same thing or not - I had a lot of bruising with mine.
