I have a peroneal nerve injury resulting from crossing my legs. Who would ever have thunk it. I have all the symtoms drop foot and numbness of the outside calf starting just below the knee. It happened about ten days ago and I am hving no pain. I got new shoes and bought a brace. I have not been to the doctor because I have no insurance. My question is simple, has anyone ever gotten better? My reseach so far has been people giving doctors a whole lot of money for no relief.
I have been using a heating pad on the area thinking an increase in blood to the area will help over time.
