one foot doesnt flex

I am a 26 year old female, in great health, an avid exerciser. Recently I noticed when walking in flat shoes that my right foot seems to "slap" the ground a lot harder and louder than my left foot. I also find myself picking up my right knee higher than my left in just walking regularly. But most recently I realized that I can flex my left foot back very far, but cant flex the right much at all. Its as if the muscles that make the foot flex aren't getting the message from my brain to flex them. Why is this? And what can I do about it?
