Broken Fibula 6 months ago

I fractured my fibula 6 months ago. The cast and boot are off and I have been doing physical herapy for the past two months, yet I am in considerable pain both walking and at rest. It burns all along the outside of my leg up to the knee. It tingles and stars going numb and can go all the way up to the groin area if I try to walk far. Sometimes it is like stabbing pain....erve pain and I suddenly cannot put any weight on it for a few minutes. The physician's assistants and physical therapist just massage it and give me exercises which are almost impossible due to the pain. Is this normal????

Pro-Tec Athletics' J-Lat Knee Support helps guide the patella back into proper alignment with gentle pressure from the lateral to medial direction. Compression surrounding the patella will help keep it in the patella-femoral groove.
