Still limp after sciatica pain has gone

Severe sciatica went away and very little pain, but I limp and the leg feels week and right of foot toe and are numb....Will it go away? Had steroid and anti inflammatory injection.

Now 7 steroid pack along with diclofenac.

It's a question as to whether the medication has fixed the problem or just killed the pain.

If the Slump test for Sciatica is still positive then there reason for concern.

Look for that page, and the one on 'leg pain muscle testing' to see whether a weak big toe or calf muscle is the cause of your limp. Can you raise your heel off the ground?

You're on thin ice, be very careful, sit much less and don't bend.
