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

Thank you. Ive seen many MDs: ortho,neuro,podiatrist, vascular, physiatrist etc. MRIs have been done on my brain, spinal chord, solar plexus, leg, and peroneal nerve. All are negative. X-Rays of hips and toes, negative, four EMGs of left leg, unremarkably positive. Ive had no stoke, am perfectly healthy (almost 50 yrs old) Very fit and trim, I pass all tests, but for the last 2 years, I have had a terrible time walking. I have a bank of up to 50 steps, then I start dragging and slapping my left foot!! Should I now start looking at my ankle?? There is NO pain anywhere, just fatigue from the limping. Im on my feet all day at work (12 hour shifts) My full plastic AFO doesnt help. I limp through it. Thank you so much.

Tuli's Double-Ribbed Pro heel cups are the most advancesd shock absorbing heel cups available today. The primary force of the heel strike is absorbed by the larger and higher waffle pattern while the lower and denser waffle pattern absorbs the high pressure and final force spike of heel strike. Perfect for sports activities.
