@jeanniefranks,
Drop Foot can be caused at any age and it doesn’t allow an individual to walk properly and makes them to lift their knee beyond the level they used to lift. It is generally caused due to any nerve injury.

@Muthamedia,
Hello Jeannie,
Take heart, it should get better. I had an injury last March and all of a sudden I started stumbling and falling and experiencing excruciating pain if I walked even a short distance.

I began doing exercises on my own, but months went by with no results. I became very depressed and started PT for about 6 weeks. I still was in pain and could not lift my foot. After continuing to exercise my foot, I suddenly realized that I was not stumbling and stubbing my toe. My gait was normal. So after 9 months, I still have numbness and pain if I walk more than a few blocks, but I'm getting better and my foot is stronger. I have full flexibility of my foot though. I believe, eventually the numbness will go away. So hang in there and continue to exercise.
