Leg weakness and foot drop
I have spinal stenosis and had a lumbar laminectomy 3 years ago to remove bone spurs which were involving my spinal nerves. I have gotten along great until the last few months I started having sacroillitis pain. A MRI revealed herniated lumbar disc with mild scoliosis. I received an injection which helped the pain but now I have overwhelming weakness with foot drop on my right side. I feel like a bobble-head from the waist now and have the high stepping gait I have read about. I am to have an EMG in 3 weeks---is this soon enough. This is scary and very overwhelming. Any insight or help would be greatly appreciated.
