My 5 year old son has been walking with a limp for about a week. When he walks, he turns his foot out on that leg. He feels no pain when I rotate his foot or touch him, except when I touch a small area on his inner shin about the middle of the way down. Compared to the other shin, there appears to be a small bump there. There is no bruising. X-rays did not reveal anything. Now, the doctor wants to do an MRI, which would include an IV, to make certain that it is not a tumor. However, my son is very, very afraid of needles. My guess is shin splints or possibly a bone infection (he has eczema); but he does not complain about pain unless I touch that spot on his shin and there is no skin irritation or fever. Any guesses?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
