    Hi @Cline - Welcome to the community, & thank you for joining. I'm sorry to read about your problem.
    You mention you've seen specialists, but it sounds like you haven't been kept in the loop as to what may be going on. Depending on how long ago it was that you were seen by specialists, you could book an appointment with your GP, & ask them about this. Alternatively, if you know your specialist's secretaries telephone numbers, I would give them a call, & ask them to send you a copy of the specialists' letters. You would probably still want to discuss these with your GP, but hopefully you might know a little more beforehand..

    Hi @Cline. Was it the specialists that suggested foot drop? When is your next appointment?
