Foot Drop

I am searching for answers so to why I have suddenly developed foot drop.
None of the test or MRI I've had can explain it so for. Possible nerve damage?
It doesn't appear to be a back issue. I'm at a lost where to turn to for answers. I will have a second EMG is two weeks to see if my foot has improved or gotten worse.

Re: Foot Drop

Hi, my foot drop occurred immediately upon waking after hip replacement a year ago. I've had EMG, MRI and neurologist all study me and there's really nothing that can be done. I even thought of "nerve bypass" but it was too difficult to find the exact location of the damage site. How or what happened to you?
