Q. My two years old boy started to limp and to complain about foot pain. what can it be?

My two years boy is complaining about a left foot pain. the pain starts in his thigh and radiates down. He doesn't have fever or any other symptom. He started waking in the age of 1.5 years and he never walked well. He seems like he is never balanced on his left leg. His labor was traumatic, and I needed a C-section. what can be the source of his complaints?
A1Hello...has your son been seen by a pediatric orthopedist? There are many things this could be...including flat feet, no arches (have the child step in water and then walk on concrete...see if you can see an arch there or is there nothing but the water with no indication of an arch. Just in case of something more serious, and not to frighten you, but let's say things are out there today, ? a rare syndrome or even Charcot? Only a pediatric orthopedist could address those types of issues and no mom ever wants to see her son or daughter suffer...
it hurts us as much as them I think! If it continues or gets worse, please do not delay in seeing the pediatric orthopedist to be sure.
I hope this was helpful and blessings your way. BARBS
A2I think your boy meets the criteria for hip Dysplasia.
You can learn more about it here.

He is too old for the regular casting treatment but i guess that a skilled orthopedic will know what to do.
A3Your kid may suffer from perth disease. My boy was 4 years old when he started to suffer from those exact symptoms.
This is a benign situation and the most important thing you can do is go to the GP for constant revisions.
On the other hand, Your boy started to walk in an old age. you need to tell it to your GP maybe the problem is there.

Q. is the one first question i asked here a lame one?

it's just that it's been 15 days. i think i put some real effort in confronting myself so as to benefit, not waste anyones or my time. i don't know i figured more feedback would be offered. hey if it's kind of a i don't know hopeless question maybe any answer, really any answer at all would be appreciated? thanks...
A1Thank you!
A2I tried to look at your old questions, and it does sound very sincere. However, I'm not sure I am the appropriate one to answer it - it seems like you may benefit from talking to someone more professional (e.g. psychologist or psychiatrist).

Take care,

Q. My arm became limp after flu shot & have had pain in arm. Vaccine itself or improper injection? Any advice?

I could not move my arm about 3 hours after the injection. It took about 3 days before I could raise my arm at all. It became painful to use and has bothered me for a couple of months. The doctor gave me a cortisone shot which helped some but not completely. He had never seen this reaction before. Is it a reaction to the vaccine or could it be the way it was injected? Is their anyone who has had or knows of a similar case?
A1I had a flu shot last October, and it was given to me directly on the backside (and up high) of my shoulder. I went to the gym after I received the shot, and now have two tears in my (torn) rotator cuff, with a perforation in my rotator cuff tendon. I think it may have been improperly given. Now I need to have surgery to repair it. Look up your symptoms on webmd, and surf the net. Talk to your doctor too. The only way to find out what is really going on with it is to have an MRI. A simple xray will not reveal a tear in the muscle or tendon in the rotator cuff. If you can't lift your arm, and have trouble sleeping at night, and pain on your deltoid and bicep (rotator cuff injury pain radiates to these areas) because of the pain, then chances are you have an injured rotator cuff. These people giving these immunizations need more training. They are causing serious injury to people that go in to get a shot to stay healthy, and then end up with a serious injury, and possible surgery !!! Goo
A2This sounds more like an improper injection that by accident hurt your muscle fibers, which is something that happens with many vaccines not just the flu one. This is indeed painful and disturbing in the beginning but goes away within days and does not cause any permanent harm.
