Usually, a foot drop
is a symptom of some other underlying condition, typically a neurological one. At the same time, it is possible that a person is simply having difficulty walking because they have injured a muscle in their calves or ankles which is impeding their gait. Assuming injury
is ruled out, the condition usually is caused by some form of lesion formed in either the brain, the central nervous system
, or the nerves leading from there to the affected muscles, so that the signals controlling movement are not properly transmitted. A careful assessment of the problem, potentially by a neurologist
, is necessary to identify the precise cause. I would suggest you to consult a doctor immediately and get a work up done..
Hope this helps!!
