Unable to pull up right ankle. History of cellulite, red patches on legs. Cure?

I am not able to pull my ankle up. History: Exactly 1 yr before i ran on treadmill at a speed of around 10 km/hr for around 20 mins. I then had a lot of pain in my right leg and it got swollen. Few days later I had red patches on it and later when i visited the doc they told me i had a cellulite and then got treated with it. but since then I am not able to pull up my right ankle.

Hi there .

I have studied your case .
According to me you could have suffered from mild compartment syndrome during the cellulitis episode . This would have lead to compression of the leg nerves thus causing a neuropraxia or temporary nerve damage .

A neurotropic agent like pregablin and methycobalamine
