Hi all, seems like the last time I was here was about 9 years ago .. wow! Was only 70 then and now nearly 80, where does the time go.
I was looking for information about "Foot Drop" which I've suddenly got. When I walk my right foot doesn't lift clear of the floor, the toes drop down causing me to trip! Bad news at any age but at my age this is really bad news obviously. A fall could cause me a broken hip or something and as I'm caring for my partner who is disabled we would really be in trouble. I am having to walk with an exaggerated lift from the knee so I plant my foot down flat instead of doing the usual walk of heel toe lift.
I've been researching treatments and I've found a simple solution which only involves a simple injection behind the knee called Fibula Nerve Hydrodissection but it doesn't seem to be available in the UK. All I can find in the UK is electrical nerve stimulation either topically or under the skin. I'm having an X-ray on my back next week and a body CT Scan the week after.
Has anyone here in the UK heard of it or had it and did you find a treatment for it? xx
