    Pars Defect causing drop foot.. any ideas??

    I am still pretty new to all this.. I have had lower back pain for several months.. then about 3 weeks ago my right foot weht numb which caused me to fall a couple of times.. - - I have had 2 MRI's and 1 EMG - the spine doc said it shows that i have nerve damage in my lower back.. and is saying that it appears that I might have Pars Defect,, and is ordering some more test.. - - the area of pain is my L4, L5, and S1.. - - I am now having to wear an AFO brace to keep from tripping over my toes.. - - I guess I am just starting to get down.. I am only 35 - a single mom of 3 boys.. normally on the go 24-7.. now just on a heating pad most of the time.. I am taking Percocet 10s for the pain.. - has anyone gone thru anything simular to this?? - and know about Pars Defect - Thanks everyone!!
