Delayed foot drop
In early April, I had an injection in my buttock of a muscle relaxer that I had an allergic reaction to. Ever since then, my right leg (the same leg as the injection) has been tingly/numb, especially from the knee down. There is also pain down the back of my leg. My doctor suspects that there's been some damage to the sciatic nerve, but my EMG test looks normal. The foot drop didn't happen initially, it's only started a few days ago. Is this just from the sciatic nerve/neuropathy? Or from some gradual weakness? I've been told my nerves should heal, but how long will that take? I'm meeting with a neurosurgeon later this week to hopefully get some advice and answers/

Were you having the muscle relaxer because you had back pain initially? How was the appt with your neurosurgeon?
