Well I'm humbled I had an urgent MRI scan or my lower back today and within an hour of the scan had a call from the on call nice neuro Dr (was awaiting her to take over from other dr) to say there is nothing glaringly evident in my lover back that she could see would be causing this foot drop and other neuro symptoms. Great news and super service.
So next step is nerve conduction studies on Wednesday. Hoping they will shed some light on it all for me.
Only a few falls today too. So all round a not so bad day.
Does anyone else have foot drop and numbness elsewhere and if so what are the causes. My consultant is focussing on possible mononeuritis multiplex or MS she has been very clear on both conditions but they are still clinical suggestions and not diagnosis yet. I have a meeting with my work tomorrow to discuss returning to work, mmmm not sure how I can nurse on crutches lol I'm supposed to provide a realistic return date how do I do that with out knowing what is causing the problems.
