Loss of Feeling

Patient : Today I completely wiped out on the pavement and scraped my ankle in a weird place. I scraped it right on the top, where the skin folds when you lift your toes up. I've been trying to clean it out, but when I touch it, there is no feeling? The scrape is about the size of a quarter with what looks like bruising underneath it? I touched the scrape with a q-tip and I could not feel the q-tip at all? I was just wondering if this was normal or I should be going to get this looked at?
Symptoms:  Soreness around the ankle
