Question

Posted by Ashleigh H on 9/23/02 at 09:00 (096007)

My 10 year old brother complains that their is a spot on each heel that hurts 'like heck' when touched or pressed hard. When I examined the area, he just abot jumped out of his skin when I touched it. He used to have awful muuscle cramps in the calf muslce of his legs. He has extremly flat feet and often goes barefoot with no support, is it possible that he actually has spurs?

He's too young for plantar fasciitis. It's probably Sever's Disease, which afflicts children while their bones are growing. I believe they usually grow out of it, but I'm sure one of the doctors will tell you about it.
