My 3 year old has been waking up every so often complaining about his feet being sore and needing to keep his feet on top of his blanket rather than tucked up nice and warm. It only happens occasionally but is always at night. He has no complaints about it during the day. I have asked him about it and all i am getting from him is that sometimes its one foot down along the inside and sometimes its both feet. The pain can somtimes last for hours during the night with him crying and rubbing his feet together while trying to get back to sleep. I try to massage them for him. Sometimes he lets me other times he does not. It has been happening for about 8 months on and off now and i still have no idea why or how it is happening. I have heard that if i take him to the GP that he will tell me it is growing pains but i might just have to anyway. I thought i would post this thread first to see if it there is any other parents out there that has a similiar issue and if they have got a diagnosis on it.

Don't panic, but rickets is back with a vengeance in the UK, as a direct result of widespread sun avoidance. Your GP should test his vitamin D levels straight away.

Hi
I agree it could be deficiency of vitamins ans minerals. Give him lots of fruits and vegetables.

It may be worth finding a local qualified podiatrist, who could assess and and advise about what course of action to take. However, I've just pinged that this thread was started a couple of years ago. I hope there has been a positive outcome to his problem.

It's better to consult a doctor and get rid of this problem.

I also like your opinion, children have expressed: crying, startled, or sweat, removing slow, slow teething, children may become more severe rickets make soft and deformed bones, seizures by lowering blood calcium.
