Foot Drop Recovery - Life After


Have recently recovered almost all movement from a foot drop with simple rest to the peroneal nerve and visiting a basic pilates class once a week. The root cause of the drop was never diagnosed, but the neurologist I saw advised the course of action and am quite happy with the results.

I have just a couple of questions to anyone who might be lucky enough to have recovered the same way as I have. I have now developed a chronic clicking/cracking in the affected ankle joint which is occasionally accompanied by a relatively short, dull pain in the joint. Sometime the pain (not overwhelming) occurs without the clicking/cracking in the joint. As mentioned, movement is no longer affected and the ankle functions almost correctly.

I developed the foot drop mysteriously as it was not caused by any trauma/operation. Should I still be concerned?

Thanks to anyone who can help :)
