I have a long thread on my struggles with foot drop and was decompressed July 20th 2014. (20 days after my foot went dead) I've busted my butt in physio/yoga and lost 40 pounds eating well and going to spin. My back is better, but my leg can be a real pain. Cramps, twitching and stiffness keep me awake at night. If I move or wake up a bit it will tighten and contort so that I need to stand on it to straighten it to go back to sleep. I'm going to get a tens unit to see how that will help. I'm not on any medication for this. The burning sensations have gone from when the nerve was originally flattened so I have a numb leg with tight and limited mobility in my foot. The cold really hinders mobility too.. So I sleep with a heat pack. Any and all suggestions will be entertained. Love to all!
