Hi Debbie, I had foot drop to the point where my right foot actually dragged when I walked.
It was due to impinged nerve problems. I have degenerative disc disease and had been
plagued by Sciatica off and on for years. I had chiropractic care almost daily for a year,
then physical therapy and when my foot started dragging I was referred to a neurosurgeren and he performed a lumbar laminectomy. I no longer have foot drop but
still occasionally deal with Sciatica.
Debbie, let your doctor know of this symptom. Seeing a neurologist will ease your mind,
so you aren't worrying,
