Intermittent sharp pain at site of fibula fracture from six years ago...

Hi, have never posted here before, but have ongoing problem with pain at site of fracture from 2008. Fell when I passed out, and broke my leg/ankle. Can go for weeks without any pain or discomfort, then for a period of time have intense bursts of pain that can last for seconds or hours. At times, just the touch of a sheet or wisp of cotton can set off shock waves of pain. There is a small, uber-sensitive nodule over the site of the fracture. What gives? What is going on here?
