Question reflex issues??? foot drop

hi folks
iv just been refered back to my nuero again by my gp after my chiropractor i have been seeing due to back pain.Noticed i had some loss of reflex in my legs and arms.And an abnormal plantor reflex she says its best to get it checked out by a nuero as she not sure as to the cause. i also have developed foot drop on my left foot. could this be caused by a leision ?
i had an mri 18 months ago and had two white spots and was told it was not conclusive enough for a dx and to see how my symtoms progressed .
any thoughts on this would help

Re: reflex issues??? foot drop

It would be a good idea to get a follow-up MRI. It is difficult to say 'Lesion A' causes foot drop. It is hard to pinpoint.

Foot drop is indicative of MS or a neurological problem. I have had consistent foot-drop for 32 years.
