need help asap

My son (4yro) started complaining last night that his foot hurt. we thought it was because his shoes were getting to small so we told him he didnt have to wear them anymore. Well this morning he says it is still hurting and he cant walk on it. It doesnt look swollen or anything and he crys if we have him try to walk anywhere. Anyone know what it could be??

  • Any number of things--a stone bruise, a slightly twisted ankle, or something similar--these I would suspect if he had been running or jumping yesterday afternoon. If he continues to complain, I would take him Monday and have it checked out.

  • Could be nothing more than a bruise, could be something more....I'd go to the doctor just to be on the safe side *nod*
