I'm new here, my name is Anja, I'm a 42 yrs old woman from the Netherlands. I have foot drop since 1 year. It occured acute, i wear an AFO and I now see i'm not the only one hating this device ;-) i have a love/hate relationship with my AFO. My foot and lower leg are so weak that my AFO doesn't do the job anymore :(
I was wondering if i'm alone here with acute foot drop? It was there from one moment to the other without trauma or whatever. I am also very tired, suffered from severe weightloss without having a diet... and i have severe muscle weakness, my left lower arm and hand are useless too, paralysed!
Docters still have no clue about the cause, i posted my story in the neurology group, you can read it here:
