Well i’m not sure what it is but here’s the story.
This past Thursday I was icing my knee which was a little bit stiff and tendy (thus the reason i was icing it) I was using one of them bags you get at gas stations and one of my coaches wrapped it around my leg so it would surround the side of my knee. I kept it on there for about 20-30 minutes and when i took it off I noticed that my foot and part of my calf was completely numb and I couldn’t even move my foot even if i tried. Eventually I could move my leg but there was a slight numbness on the outter side of my calf and the top outside part of my foot (the part where there is liie a “big ball” of muscle by the outter ankle along with the side of it) I thought it was just an after effect and would go away later on in the night. But it didn’t. It’s been hurting since Thursday and it is still a problem with me, though not as bad, it is still kinda numb. I can sitll feel in it just not as good and sometiems when i run on it it kind of rolls over. The feeling is like a numb/tired feeling.
This is really scaring the crap out of me because one of my friends said they heard a story where this hapened ot someone elseand they had to amputate his leg and the other person’s leg was numb for the rest of his life!!
If anybody knows how to cure or treat this please tell me. I have tried heat, massage and what not (not ice sicne it was the cause of it)I just want my old leg and foot back!
