Dear Jen

It is possible your son has Sever's disease. It sounds terrible but actually it's a fancy term for growing pains. It can affect growing children about 10 years old. I suggest you do a search for it on Google, you will find loads of information about it. You can also see a podiatrist who will be able to help.

Regards
Chris
