I twisted or broke my left foot 4 years ago I never had the injury treated .I now have limited movement of the left foot and much slower reaction I am 64 and in excellent shape except for this.I developed adult chicken pox which was not diagnosed 3years ago which I am now free of. I was concerned that the virus could also have impacted the nerves of the leg and foot.Any suggestions ?

Thank you for your question,

Injury to your foot and not taking treatment for it, now you have restricted movement of foot and ankle , all this suggests that you had some internal.foot or ankle.injury like a fracture or broken ligament.
Most probably It has nothing with your adult chicken pox,
Now you might need a xray and an MRI of foot or ankle and further treatment according to that.

Hope this helps,
