numbness in heel after ankle sprain

about two weeks back i fell during a dance class rolling my ankle outwards. i went to my physician and had an x-ray taken to assure nothing was broken. i took care of my sprained ankle by use of the RICE method and now i have no feeling in the heel of the ankle i sprained. it is completely numb to the touch but is not in severe pain. what does this numbness in my heel mean, and how can it be fixed?

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
