I broke my ankle in three places and had to have surgery to put metal pins in it to rebuild it. That was middle of September. I've had a hard cast on my ankle for two week now. I was told not to put weight on it for 4 weeks. I was doing fine and pain was nonexistence. In the last few days my ankle feels like it's on fire. A constant burning sensation as if my skin is being rubbed raw and an occasional shooting pain up my calf.
