    Done it playing football after work, at the time it was painful but I thought it was just a minor ankle sprain, walked it off afterwards, went out clubbing the following day, then back to work yesterday walking on it thinking it was fine as I had literally zero pain (But i couldnt help walking with a slight limp), Dad took one look at my ankle and took me to hospital to which I found out I have a broken ankle.

    How the hell can I have a broken ankle yet not feel it? I was even proving to people I had no pain by jumping up and down on it 1 legged..

    The area wasnt numb just very swollen and bruised, my ankle looked like it belonged to a 90 year old granny.

    Anyone heard something similar to this? Im currently in a cast which I feel is totally pointless as I can walk fine and feel no pain.

    I had a generic xray of my ankle I think, the doctor booked me into the fracture clinic saying ive fractured my talus and then wrapped me up in plaster. I should get more details from the person at the fracture clinic.
