I got run over by a fork lift at work about a month ago, and the tire crushed my left foot. It did not fracture any bones, but severely damaged the soft tissues. I`ve already been to two different doctors, but they refuse to check to see if I have nerve damage. the top part of my ankle, to about the top middle of my foot is numb to the touch, but if I press hard enough, pain shoots down my foot, almost like carple tunnel syndrome. the doctor says I do not have compartment syndrome, but I`m not sure what to think.
Also, how long does it take for swelling to go down. Will I ever fit into normal shoes again? Will I ever be able to walk normally again? please help!!
