Decreased dorsiflexion on left with decreased amplitude but normal EMG/NCV ?

I am having difficulty with dorsiflexion on my left big toe and ankle. It's not to the point where it won't lift at all but it's substantially decreased from the right side I find myself dragging it or stumbling somewhat. I had an emg/ncv and the neurologist at Kaiser said my amplitude was reduced in my left leg but within normal limits when compared to my right. I just can't figure out what's wrong and it's impacting my life. I'm 23 Female. I have EDS-H and Beh├žet's. When I do move that foot up as far as I can without the use of my hand, something is popping in my ankle. It's not particularly painful, intermittent prickly sensation. Please help, aside from effecting how I'm walking-- I'm ruining all of my left shoes. I do have bunions according to m X-rays they are at angles 35 on left and 30 on the right.

Sorry, this is a really complex problem and next to impossible to answer or provide advice without imaging and other investigations and seeing it. Sorry.
