Hi All Out There

I am still searching for help with my foot drop. I have read the odd 'blog' on Valium on this wonderful Forum. Have any of you tried Valium for foot drop. It's supposed to be a muscle relaxant - but with foot drop aren't your muscles 'over relaxed'?

Hi
I've got foot drop in right foot, just starting in left. Last night it turned completely on its side while I was in bathroom, if the sink hadn't been there I would have gone down. I've never heard of anything to help. Has anyone any suggestions?

I don't know if the Orthotics people can make you some sort of splint. Might be worth asking your physio. I think antidepressants can sometimes help with pain but like you I can't see how they could help with the foot drop itself. Mind you, I'm often wrong!
Good luck Tikatiboo and Rainey. X

Dear Nettie

I am hoping Orthotics people will help me with a splint soon. I was told on this Forum that the Allard Toe Off is good. When I mentioned it to my MND specialist last week, he was very non-committal.

Thank you for your reply

Hugs
Anna
