Hi

My son is 21 months old. He's been walking/running for the past 8 months and has ben using his legs perfectly normal. Sinced yeatserday he hasn't been able to walk - he cries everytime he has to stand up or walk - only the right leg though. He did fall yesterday when climbing off a very low chair, but there's no swelling or bruising anywhere on his leg, ankle or foot. He does not cry when I rub or press ******n his foot, ankle or leg. What can be possibly be wrong??

What can be possibly be wrong?? It sounds as if something might be broken or sprained. children usually seem to favor an area that is bothering them, and there also really pain tolerant!! Definately take him in to get checked out right away!!!!!!!
