If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Drop Foot

Asking more questions......

What is folks experience with drop foot? This has come on for me over the course of the last week and is, what I would consider, really beginning to make walking difficult and also uncomfortable in the shin. It's happening in only one foot. I have an emergency appointment with my neuro on Monday.

I did pinch a nerve in my back three weeks ago so I am hoping that has caused this and it will go away. I'm not sure though...

An AFO can help or a FES. Ampyra could help too. Lots of options to try if it continues. But drop foot is a serious enough exacerbation to call for steroids as well.
