Unhappy 4 yr old with sore feet?

My four year old will go to bed and wake up in the middle of the night screaming because her feet hurt! Sometimes it gets so bad she won't even let me put her down on her feet! It doesn't happen all the time. It seems like it happens only when she falls. Anybody gone through this? Nobody really knows what it is. One doctor said he thought it may be that when her back goes out of place that causes her feet to ache. Please tell me if anybody has dealt with this!

I am 16 and have severe flat feet, i tried everything from $375 orthics, injections, oral meds. It all failed to work i had a titiam cork inserted under the bone in my foot and the tendons lenghted 2 weeks ago. i got a cast on for now so i don't know if this will work or not. My doctor has never done on someone as old as me. he does this procedure on little kids whose feet are still growing. Take your child to a family doctor or a podirist. They might can cure it before it gets to bad.

Re: 4 yr old with sore feet?

Hi from Canada
This will not be pretty and could be life changing…but this could be what the problem is
My son was 4 yrs and was complaining about sore feet, it got so bad that we had to use a stroller when we went anywhere, anyway I took him to a Medical Clinic were the doctor examined him, he was diagnosed as having growing pains, I said ok
However the next day there was no improvement so I went to work and my wife went to the hospital they did blood work and we were in the Children’s hospital that afternoon as being diagnosed with Leukemia therefore is our story, still dealing with it after 4 relapses a BMT, radiation Twice, and his spleen removed.
Hopfully this is not the case but it is a rare indication

Re: 4 yr old with sore feet?

jrktms5 - so sorry to hear of your son's diagnosis.
As for the sore feet - my son started limping at 18 months - his knees were swollen, so we were told - could be cancer, synovitis, or JRA (juvenile rheumatoid arthritis). Well - luckily we were given the JRA diagnosis. At around 4, he would complain that his feet hurt and we couldn't spend a full day at the zoo without a stroller. His rheumatologist said that he probably has arthritis in his foot bones - a typical complaint from a JRA patient.
So - don't let the "growing pains" satisfy you if you think something is wrong. I was told and TRULY believe - a 4 year old should not limp or have pain for no reason!!!!
Let me know if I can provide further information.
