left foot drop and slap, cant walk..HELP please.

I believe Ive been incorrectly diagnosed with peroneal neuropathy with left foot drop. Ive had 5 MRIs and 4 EMGs, and have seen MD after MD,to no avail. These tests have all been negative, yet no one can figure out why my left foot drags and slaps. I have a full AFO, but that doesnt really help. My life is horribly affected, and its been 2 years. Is there something in my ankle that could cause this?? What should I get.. an X-ray or MRI, and what would we be looking for?? Ive had a course of PT. No luck. Any ideas? Thank you so much.

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
