I have neck fusions c4-5, 5-6, and 6-7. Could ankle foot problems be caused from the spine. I had a MRI a few years ago and it said c4-5 was pressing ion the thecal sac on the right.
It seems that the outer side of my foot is sometimes, painful, tinglely or numb.
Sometimes I wake up at night and my foot is asleep but it almost feels more like it is paralyzed. I also have pain when I flex my ankle towards my head in the area where the ankle and leg meet. My little toe goes underneath the two beside it when I flex my toes upward.
I had a stress fracture in my 5th metatarsal 2 years ago, but it healed.
