I have had foot drop for > 10 years. There was no significant injury that caused this. At the start I could walk fine, and didn't even notice it. It was only picked up when I mentioned I had some numbness on the outside of my calf. The last few years it has deteriorated markedly - I now have to wear a boot and have recently bought an AFO.
I have had extensive tests in these last 10 years but nothing has been found except disc issues at L3/L4 which seemed too minor and at L5/S1 for which I had a nerve block. This did not fix the foot drop (but helped with reducing back pain and tingling in the leg).
Is there anyone who has had long term foot drop who can help me understand what might lie ahead? Is the deterioration in gait a normal part of long term drop foot?
I have seen neurologists, sports and neuro physios and sports drs. Is there anyone else I should see?
I am doing physio exercises, open to any suggestions of specific exercises or other things to try.
I also have an unexplained sural nerve loss in function.
Thanks for any help, this is very challenging personally as I am young and active.
