I won’t go into how this happened accept to say that I was in the same position for 24 hours, without moving an inch. I was laying back with my right ankle crossed over my left ankle. I awoke in the emergency room about 30 hours later. With my ankles crossed it caused a huge sore on the top of my left ankle and a blister on my left bottom ankle abut the size of 4″ by 4″ that kept expanding with yellow fluid. My right ankle had an open sore where it had been in contact with my right ankle. Every since then over 6 months ago I have had soreness.numbness,trmendous pain, open sores and an open blister that just now 6 months later is starting to heal, although I have numbness and tingling as well as a lot of pain, The numbeness radiates down to both of my big toes and the toes besides them along with some numbness going from my ankles and toes. this just will not go away. and I’m in constant pain. Do you think there is nerve damage there?

    Yes it is possible that the superficial sensory nerves on the top of the foot got compromised. If they are still intact, they have potential to recover but it might take many months. A neurologist is who you should see.
