    I have a 7 yr old son who is complaining of foot pain. He has complained off and on for a while, but last Tuesday he really started complaining. On Wednesday he came down with what I was told was the flu- with body aches, stomach ache, loss of appetite. During this time the foot pain was constant and he refused to walk on his feet. The other symptoms have gone but he is still complaining of foot pain. He is back in school and is active in gym and recess and has come home in a lot of pain. I have given him Tylenol and Motrin. The Motrin seems to work better, but the pain comes back. The pain is present whether he is wearing shoes or not-so I rule out poor fitting shoes. I could really use some help with this as this is affecting his normal everyday life.

    Your question, which includes absolutely nothing in regard to the history, location and characteristics of the child's pain seems to presume that there is either only one possible cause of foot pain or that an endless list of possiblities would be helpful to you. Is it reasonable to expect that you might actually obtain any real help in this manner? If and when you do take the child to a doctor, as you should, please first think through all the details which might be of assistance to the examiner and be prepared to offer a cogent description of the complaint and its attendent issues.
