I was wondering if anyone could help. My child rolled their ankle. Nothing is broken. Their foot is completely paralyzed, can not feel anything nor move it.

    That could be nerve or blood supply damage. If her foot is cold or off color call 911. If it is warm, good pulse I would still go to Emergency. If she can't move it or feel it that is not good. Best of luck!

    I have gone to the hospital, they are at a loss as to why the foot can't not feel or move.

      WHEW!!  I am so glad to hear that. This must be horrible for you. I would see an orthopedic specialist as my next step. Do you have a teaching hospital near you?  Research online who is most recommended. Good luck, Rachel.
