Slow foot reflex

Spinal_stenosis
suggests possible nerve compression in lumbar or sacral spine, which could result from bulging/ruptured disc, bone spur compressing spinal cord or nerve root, or spinal stenosis. Suggest seeing orthopedic or neurosurgeon for evaluation, tests (including MRI), options for treatment. If U have foot drop or similar problems, do not delay. Sooner the treatment, less damage.
