Re: need help
My EMG showed that the peroneal nerve (superficial nerve on outside of calf) was causing my foot drop (trouble flexing my foot).
What I'm gathering is that you have something quasi-similar...that certain nerves in your leg are affecting your movement...left to right? (versus flexing and pointing your foot). Is that right???
The other 2 nerves mentioned are: tibial (back of calf that ultimately branches from your sciatic at the back of your thigh - peroneal is one of the others, but just wraps around to the front of the calf) and sural (back of calf which branches from the tibial nerve).
Um, not a dr. or anything (just reviewing my anatomy guide), and it's not identifying whether these are superficial or deep (peroneal is superficial).
Don't know if this helps, but I hope it does...
