Unhappy Serious ankle pain and numbness

I had the ligaments replaced in my ankle about 5 years ago. Before that lots of sprains, and torn ligaments. Everything seemed to be o.k. until about a year ago. The pain is back and worse than ever, plus it is now on the inside of my ankle as well as the outside. It feels like the bone on the back of my leg is pushing on top of the back of my ankle and now my foot keeps falling asleep. (Lots of tingling from the ankle on down.) Has anyone had these symptoms. I have an appointment with my doctor but not for another 7 days. That seems like forever.

Re: Serious ankle pain and numbness

Your problems sound quite serious. The tingling sensation and numbness might be due to poor blood circulation (I used to experience that too). If that's the case, I will recommend you a pair of socks which I have worn and helped stop my experiences.
It's called Bonvolant compression socks and helps to boost blood circulation in your feet, reduces the workload of your heart and detoxifies your body.
I wear it to bed every night and I no longer experienced such tingling sensation (except when I stop wearing it, then it comes back again).
Hope this is of help to you based on my own personal experience. I have been using it for more than 5 years and I no longer have such feet problems.
All the best to you.

Re: Serious ankle pain and numbness

Thank you for the information. I will definately look into that. I will also talk to my doctor and see if he has heard of those socks. I will try almost anything at this point. Thanks again!!
