Hi clshrfan...

Just writing a little update on my experience as well as it seems quite close to yours...right now I am 4 months out with foot drop due to a leg fracture and like you, I have always had sensation in my foot, along with a feeling of numbness and tingling as well from the knee on down. The numbness and tingling, however, have not interfered with the feeling, which I think is strange. Since this whole thing started, I have noticed very humble progress, but it is progress nonetheless. In the beginning I could only move my foot a little flicker to the outside. Now I can move it more to the outside (evert I think it's called), and when I try really hard, I can move my foot up at the ankle about 1/2". I also have a little more movement in the toes as well. When I look at my ankle, like you, I can see some muscle twitching too. I hope this is a sign of better things to come and have been told by my PT to practice moving my foot upward for 30 minutes a day while dangling my legs off the side of the bed.

Have you gone for an EMG and nerve test yet in order to determine the exact nature of your problem? These tests are not pleasant, but they are not that bad either. Take care and thank you for words of encouragment. Best, T
