My 11 yr olds foot and leg pain

My son fractured his foot on the top at the bend over a year ago. He has twisted this foot multiple times and they put him in a cast and send him on his way. Everytime he twist it it swells and causes him a lot of pain. His pediatrician sent him for an MRI and a bone scan which both turned out to be normal. I don't know what else to do. His foot hurts all the time and radiates up his leg. Does anybody have any suggestions?

Re: My 11 yr olds foot and leg pain

Wow, I know of a quite similar situation with some one, a young nephew.
His ankle fracture healed and the cast came off. But at least half year more down the line, he still complains of occasional shooting pains around the bone. I don't think the doctor he saw for that was able to help him. It makes me feel quite bad for him as it is affecting him. He'll be playing, running around and then suddenly he'll stop and complain about a sudden pain in the lower half of his leg.

I'd love to hear back if you find out anything about your son's case.
