I've just recently been involved in being hit by a car, I am non weightbearing for 6 weeks and I'm currently at the 5 and a half week mark. My doctor told me I managed to stretch a nerve from my back attached to my hip ( I think, I don't quite understand and he was very short with explaining it). Because of this I had pins and needles in my foot from the moment of the accident and then about 3 weeks after my injury I started experience burning, feeling of electrical shocks, numbness and hypersensitive in my big toe and th inner arch of my foot.
My doctor told me there's not much they can do for me, which I'm struggling to deal with as it is painful and I can't sleep cause it hurts the most at night time for some reason!
Has anyone experienced anything similar, what can I do to help. Will it go away eventually and if so how long will it take until it starts to go away. Will walking again help once I start ? Any help or experiences like mine would be great!
