The Cause Of A 5-year-old Boy’s Foot Suddenly Aches So Hard To Walk?
Good afternoon … I want to ask the foot of my 5-year-old child to the right, suddenly it hurts from the thigh to the ankle. Until the road is made sick like a sprain. I asked, he said, he didn’t fall and at school he wasn’t too active, maybe after playing often jumping or not. Please enlighten me?
