You shouldn't.....: Unless in the stirrups you damaged the common peroneal nerve. Most likely this is anterior tibialis tendonitis and it "feels" like a foot drop. Give it some time to recover and you should be ok.

Now: If you have foot drop for any reason, you should call your doctor immediately as the earlier the treatment the better.
