I posted a few days ago about foot pain my 5yo has had for about a week. Well, it has progressively gotten more constant, seems to hurt worse, and is now hurting on the top as well as the inside. It doesn't hurt to touch or press on it, mostly when walking or doing activity. He was still running and jumping but I can tell that is starting to bother him.
I took him to the doctor and she said there was a condition that *could* cause foot pain in children. I'm to wrap his foot and if not better in 2 weeks take him back for X-ray.
I looked up this condition and it said it causes heel pain (he has no heel pain at all) and usually starts in puberty in boys (he's 5).
Well, I stumbled across several sites about child foot pain that said leukemia can present itself in this way. There was one story with symptoms exactly like my child. I'm beside myself. I couldn't sleep all night, haven't eaten. I have horrible thoughts running through my head. What should I do? I can't wait 2 more weeks like this.
