I have a chip fracture lateral of anterior calcaneous and I am in a cam boot . It has been two weeks since the injury and I need to keep my leg elevated, since if I put it down for 2 minutes , the blood pools in my foot and it feels sore and pretty congested with blood. I am having some neuropathic pain At night( pins and needles, spasms, and some tremor) in my foot. I was put on Endep , Endone, and clexane to prevent DVTs. Can you give me an opinion please as to why I cannot tolerate putting leg down with this blood pooling please? What can I do to prevent or slow down any CRPS?
I would appreciate your help.
