Would you take him in?

My son had been complaining about his heel hiring for a couple of weeks. I've looked and looked at it and can see nothing wrong. It's not swollen, bruised, or changed in any way. It's gotten to the point now that he is walking on his tippy toes to avoid his heel. It only hurts when he walks on it. However, Doew to hubby changing jobs, we don't have insurance right now. So any trip to the Dr is going to cost an arm and a leg. Would you take him in and swallow the cost or wait and see what happens because it doesn't show any signs of injury?

ETA My husband is being a total dick! He thinks my son should just deal with it because he, hubby, does. I'm so ticked! I am taking him in, regardless of hubby opinion. Sometimes that man drives me up the freaking wall!

It's already been a couple of weeks. Take him to the doctor.

What have you done to help the pain? There doesn't have to be swelling for something to be wrong.

Bone spurs, plantar fasciitis, cracked heal. None of which have to cause swelling.

Is he a runner?

Take him in. Who cares what it costs. It's affecting his walking.

I would bite the bullet and take him. Especially if he has been complaining about it for awhile & now causing him to walk differently. I wouldn't want my child to be in pain just because of a set back. There is no telling when the new insurance would take affect.

Ibuprofen and Tylenol mostly.

Yeah I'd take him. Usually insurance doesn't kick in for 3 months. He can't wait that long from what it sounds like.

I'd take him in. You can make payment arrangements with the doctor's office. Obviously the boy is in pain, and you can see that it's altering his walking. 

Like other people have already said--there could be a number of things wrong with it that you wouldn't be able to see just from looking at his heel.
