Customer Question

My 8 year old son has been complaining that his feet are hurting. Some days he says it feels like bees are stinging his feet and other days he says they just feel soar. He plays sports, and you can clearly tell when he runs that his feet are bothering him. Its been going on for about a month now.

It needs exam.

It might be a shoe problem, a foot problem [most likely] but can also represent neuropathy, rarely.

Have him seen by an orthopedist as soon as possible.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
