You : You made no mention of any injury, so i will assume there was none. One of the most common causes of foot pain in children is something called osteonecrosis, where a small section of bone begins to die as a result of a closure of a small nutrient artery to that one small section of bone. Different acronyms have been given to the different bone that is affected: köhler disease is avascular necrosis of the navicular bone, which is as close to what you describe as the "middle part." probably the most well known osteochondridity is osgood–schlatter disease, which is avascular necrosis of the tibial tubercle, just below the knee. It's usually not as serious as it sounds, and treatment is predicated on how much pain there is. It is self-limiting, which means at some point, her pain will go away completely, but it might take years before that happens. My best advice is to seek the services of a podiatrist or orthopedic surgeon who specializes in pediatric orthopedics. There are treatments, and she doesn't have to live in pain. Hope this helps. Good luck to your daughter! ...Read more

My mom has a pain under her left breast that feels like pins. What should I do the has reoccured over the last three days and I am not sure she has no other obvious signs or symptoms

To : To be safe your mom should see her doctor. This may just be muscle pain however a cardiac (heart) cause needs to be ruled out. If the pain is intense with any other symptoms like shortness of breath, heart racing, nausea, sweating etc, then she should be evaluated in the emergency department. All the best. ...Read more

Needs more tests: I would follow up with your doctor today. Your son needs more tests. This could be something very serious. You may need a blood doctor to help determine the cause and treatment of the low hemoglobin. Please call your pediatrician today. They can help you find the right doctors. ...Read more

My daughter and I have a few health issuses and my fiancee constantly pretend to have the same symthoms no matter what is it. Is tha a condition?

Attention seeking: I think sometimes the dynamics in the family are such that when one individual is getting attention (either good, bad, intentional or not), that a loved one or another family member may feel left out in some way. I don't particualarly think that this is a "condition" but is more likely a way of trying to reach out for his or her own attention. ...Read more

What should i take i have a high fever and my muscle body is all aching also my tonsils?

Acetaminophen: Tylenol (Acetaminophen) may help with the aches and fever, given the nature of your symptoms and as long as you don't have any liver dysfunction. 1-2 tabs (usually somewhere between 325 to 650mg) every 4 to 6 hours as needed to control symptoms. However, if these symptoms persist beyond 4-5 days or you start vomiting or are unable to keep down fluids, see your doctor. Stay hydrated! ...Read more
