Has your sprained ankle caused numb toes?

Ankle sprains can be tricky to diagnose as they present many similar symptoms to an ankle fracture. If you have sprained your ankle, you may suffer a range of symptoms including swelling and pain when you try to put weight on your ankle. If your sprained ankle caused numb toes, it’s normal to worry that something is seriously wrong, but this is actually more common than you might think. Swelling from injured tendons and ligaments in your ankle can press on the nerves leading to your toes, causing numbness or even tingling.

If this persists then you should see your doctor immediately to ensure that you have not caused permanent damage to nerves. Your GP may recommend further x-rays or a CT scan, and minor surgery may be needed if your numb toes continue to be an issue.

Time off work if your sprained ankle causes numb toes

If your sprained ankle caused numb toes then you may be struggling to walk, play sports or take part in other activities; you may even be unable to go to work and earn a living, depending on how physical your job is. If you have had to take time off work after spraining your ankle, you could make a personal injury claim, depending on how your accident happened. For example, if you sprained your ankle after tripping over trailing cables in the office at work, you could be entitled to compensation, as it’s your employer’s responsibility to ensure that your working environment is safe.

If you trip on a damaged kerb whilst shopping in the city centre, the local council could be held liable for your injuries, as they have failed to maintain pavements to a safe standard. Accident Advice Helpline can help you to work out who is responsible for your accident, provided you get in touch with us within three years of your accident happening.
