A little while back, I sprained my ankle and ended up with a compression injury. After the initial injury, I made an appointment to see my doctor. He referred me to a neurologist when he suspected I had nerve damage.
The neurologist put me through a series of nerve conduction tests and gave me the diagnosis of peroneal nerve palsy. The neurologist expects me to make a full recovery and she ruled out any other underlying causes.
I will go back to her every few months for additional nerve conduction tests and to make sure my progress is on track. I have most of my range of motion back, but still experience some tingling and occasional weakness. I am confident I will get better with time.
