My daughter is currently 11 years old. Several years ago, when she was 4 or 5 a painful spot developed on the outside of her left ankle, located in the soft spot just forward of the bony ankle bone bump. The only outward evidence of any abnormality is a small soft bump, about the size of a penny. She calls it her "foot spot". Any touch to the spot, even light pressure, causes her intense pain. In the past few weeks, she has complained of an increase in pain and sensitivity in the foot spot, and sometimes even just walking now hurts her. A year or two ago we asked her pediatrician about it and the doctor didn't have an answer, suggesting she might grow out of it. Another doctor that we have talked to that practices more on the naturalpathic side of things has suggested it might be related to her type A personality, and stress/control issues. I feel that it's time to seek more specialized medical attention, but am wondering where to start. I have done some preliminary research but have been quickly overwhelmed by all of the available information, much of which does not seem to apply to her. Thoughtful, professional input would be appreciated. Thank you.
