I broke my Fibia & Talus on May 1 and had a metal plate and 14 screws/pins inserted. I started rehab today (June 15) and my foot just shakes very badly it is an uncontrollable movement. I thought it may just be weakness, the therapist said I may have nerve damage he called it (cloneg sp?). I can't find anything that even remotely sounds like this on the internet. I am not sure of the spelling. If I do have this condition, is it reversable? Also, I still fill numbness/tingling in my arch and top of my foot. Will this most likely subside? I am really concerned that it could be paresthesia and that I have permanent damage.
When my injury occurred I had a bad dislocation, no ligaments were torn. My ankle does still have a lot of swelling.
Hi. Did he mean clonus? I have 2 plates and 16 screws in my left ankle. Been in there about 20 + years. Had my ankle crushed in a car accident. The swelling will take a while to go away. I still have swelling on a daily basis but after sleeping all night the swelling is mostly gone. I have tingling in the arch of the foot too and reduced sensation in some of the areas but I think it is from nerve damage to the peroneal nerve damage near the knee.
I broke My ankle in three places well over a year ago, I have 2 plates and 19 screws. My ankle swells every day and I habe like a toothace pain very often The say that this is due to nerve damage and want to kill off some of the nerves but I am very hesitant to have this done
