Can Torn Nerve In Lower Leg Causing Drop Foot Repair Itself
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more

Possibly: A compressed sciatic nerve can cause leg weakness. Often pain down the leg is due to a lumbar radiculopathy or irritation to the lumbar nerve roots that make up the sciatic nerve. The distribution of pain depends on which nerve is irritated although pain in the back or leg or "hamstring" is common. See your md if this pain lasts greater than 2 weeks. ...Read more

Knee ligament tear: One could experience severe pain from a knee ligament tear (e.g. Mcl, lcl, acl, pcl, etc.). If the pain is severe and lancinating and the equation contains a knee ligament, a teat of the deeper knee joint ligaments (e.g. Acl) may cause this. An orthopedic surgeon should be consulted if this is the case. ...Read more
What are the symptoms of peroneal nerve compressed? Can it occur from ankle sprain? Fibula possibly moved and pinched nerve.
Nerve impingement: Unlikely, that the fibular bone moved to pinch a nerve. The peroneal nerve (superficial peroneal nerve) is located in the skin and can be impinged through swelling resulting from an ankle sprain. The bone, ligaments, muscle, tendons are deeper than the skin, but the swelling associated with injury can cause shooting pain, burning, tingling, and numbness. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Pain, not swelling: A pinched nerve can (and often does) cause pain, along with tingling and numbness. However, pinched nerves should not cause swelling. (there may be swelling in the area of the pinched nerve, but it would not be visible. The knee would not swell from a pinched nerve alone.). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
L5-S1 Herniation: Disc herniations can give people a variety of symptoms; numbness and tingling can follow various routes in leg or arm and weakness usually has a more distinct pattern depending on the root(s) involved. Numb toes can very well be associated with your L5-S1 level, although there are possible other causes. Find a good PCP for a physical and possible imaging studies if indicated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had an EMG that showed damage to s1 and s2 nerve . Could the pain in ball of foot be caused from damaged nerve. Does it travel to toes?
Backwards thinking: Presumably you didn't just wander by a neurologist's shop window & made an impulse purchase of an EMG/NCS. You had the test for a reason. Was your foot pain the reason? You must have seen a PCP who referred you to a neurologist. What's THEIR differential Dx of your pain? If you didn't ask, why not? You have a right to an explanation in terms you understand. Silence won't get you one. Ask. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Absolutely: Both. All the muscles and joints of the lower leg work synergistically. One weak link in the chain of gait is easy to cause another. Awareness and strengthening are the hallmarks of prevention. Bracing and other hard devices should be explored as adjuncts or non-invasive options. ...Read more
Foot problem or piched nerve in back? Pain in foot when standing. When lift foot off ground pain goes away? Mri of foot normal. Pinched nerve in back
Devil in details.: Not quite enough information to help a whole lot. The pain could be due a nerve problem in the foot. The increased pressure with standing might be affecting a nerve. The exact location and type of pain are essential to solving the problem. The back could also be involved. To remove all doubt, seek an evaluation by a neurologist, orthopedic surgeon or a podiatrist. Maybe even all three. ...Read more
What effect would posterior tendon release in big toe have on gait? Ii have claw toe due to nerve damage from laminectomy
Improvement: The posterior tibial tendon causes the foot and ankle to turn in (inversion). Release of the posterior tibial tendon allows the arch of the foot to flatten, decreases ankle/foot inversion (turning in), and allows turning out (eversion). It would improve the rocker motion of the foot during gait. It may not effect a claw toe deformity unless the toe (flexor hallucis) tendons are also released. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
