On May 24th I twisted my ankle by tripping over the carpet. It was painful but I pressed all round the area and could find no exquisitely painful place so assumed I had not fractured any thing.
Over the next few days I found the pain getting less so that I could walk cut the lawn etc but the swelling and bruising did not fade.
23 days later I went to A&E and had an X ray which showed I had broken both my shin bones!
I have now had an operation to fix the breaks with metal plates.
Has anyone else found this loss of pain after injury? My leg has the normal sensitivity on the skin. My surgeon thought it might be connected with MS which I have had for 45 years
