I am not sure if this is something to worry about, but I've noticed in the last few months I can't move my right small toe. I used to be able to. I have trigeminal neuralgia and had a gamma knife procedure to alleviate the pain (it has helped greatly). I am currently taking neurontin, tegretol, and triliptol (not sure of spelling) to help with TN pain. I can obviously go ask my neurologist, but I am not scheduled to see him for a few months and wonder if this is something I should look into right away.
I had GKS in aug 2000 for a meningioma which was very close to the trigeminal nerve, I recovered well and have no side effects till now !
In the last 7 months I have developed double vision when I look in a certain direction , and when I go for a walk, I have had a MRI and all is ok , but an optomologist neurologist, has checked me and I've been told that a nerve that moves the eye has been damaged,
But I also can't move my left little toe ! Like you I feel it's frozen, , and I used to be able to, I can move the right little toe as normal, I haven't related it to GKS , till now, I'm not on any medication.
It's a mystery ??
