partial foot drop


I have been going to the gym and doing some heavy lifting and recently I noticed my shin muscles were tight. I originally thought that this was due to a muscle sprain but then started noticing weakness in dorsiflexion my ankle. I can still move my foot off the floot when standing but only slightly.

I went to my GP who said it was minor foot drop and asked to wait another 3 weeks to see if it will go. My concern is that by waiting I am making the issue worse. I have no back paid although I have been doing heavy squats in the gym but I would have thought if it was caused by a herniated disc aI will be in pain?

Any comments, stories would be greatly appreciated
