I am a 27 year old male, I have got foot drop perhaps from crossing legs frequently. I first noticed the foot drop when I was walking three weeks back, the dorsum and the end of the foot were slightly numb. The numbness has subsided a week back, but I still do not have any power to dorsiflex the foot. I can only flex it up to 1 to 2 cm when I stand up. Is it a good sign that the numbness has subsided? The doctor told me to wait and watch, but I have numbness in my left hand as well at nights, which goes away when I pump my hand. I have had a problem of hard stool previously, and now it has returned. I still have not got my reports of vitamin B12 and CRP. Should I be worried?

Thank you for replying. I have already given my blood for thyroid profile and vitamin B12 test, and I am waiting for the reports. Now I have foot drop without any numbness, and I can move my foot up more than before. However, it is still very weak. Can this be due to peroneal nerve entrapment?
