I have been in a cast for about 4  weeks and all of a sudden the cast and my leg are feeling tight almost as though my leg  was asleep. . I am  not sure why  this is happening. Up until now  the cast  felt very comfortable. My baby toe  in particular seems affected. I am going to see my doc  on Wednesday,  but want to know  if this is normal or something to worry about.

      Thanks Jasmine  

      Did he say what causes it? It's just weird to suddenly have this discomfort after 4 weeks...

    Something to do with all the blood rushing to help mend what's happened like to mend Ure bones so it just makes it uncomfortable should feel Bette in a few days. Try taking some anti inflammatorys like ibuprofen.

    Hi Zelda, yes, I would worry about it. I'd say that if that is going to happen it should be around week one, not four weeks later. I would not wait until Wednesday!

      Thanks Lisa

      It has just happened yesterday and today. Lasts about 20 minutes. It's fine now...back to normal. I will call the doc if it happens again or doesn't go away.
