Had my cast off yesterday and in an air boot, fractured fibula 5 weeks ago. Can weight bare in boot too.

My foot feels really odd - it's like a ticklish kind of pins and needles. I can move it and not much pain except this weird tickling feeling inside! Anyone else have weird sensations and is it normal? Thanks x

    Hi anniea, what you are feeling is totally normal. My foot felt like it was being electrocuted. As you start weight bearing you will have a few different sensations as you progress. As soon as you start physiotherapy they will give you exercises to do that will help with these sensations. Good luck and a speedy recovery.

    Yes that's normal. Mine went as I weight bore more although I did get chiro help and massage to get the fascia moving again.

    I had the pins & needles thing for about a week after getting my cast off (five weeks for subluxed tendons).

    This was a good question for me, because I will start weight bearing in a week's time and I stress eaaily about these things! Now I know what to expect.
