I got run over by a fork lift at work about a month ago, but it doesn`t seem to be healing good. I didn`t recieve any fractures, but I got severe muscle and soft tissue damage. the swelling on the top, and sides of the foot, as well as the lower part of my ankle had not went down. also, on top, from my akle to about the middle of my foot, the skin is numb, unless I push down realy hard. then it hurts almost as if I had carple tunnel syndrome. Do I had compartment syndrome? my doctor will not give me any tests for it, and says it`s all due to the swelling! this is my second doctor I`ve been to for this. How long will it be until I can wear regular shoes again? or will I ever be able to?
Please help. if possible please email me at DWRaptor@aol.com
