Matthew started complaining Thursday morning of back pain. I thought maybe he slept funny. Offered him some tylenol before school which he took. Very unusual for him. This is a kid who can be wracked with allergies and refuse medication.
Thursday evening. Same thing.
Friday morning, again.
Friday late afternoon. Bad. He was so upset at the end of school. Won't get into it, but he had to be dragged off the playground for bad behavior and ended up losing movie night. He was in bed by 6 pm. Slept 13 hours straight.
Saturday morning. Back pain still.
Sunday, finally. No pain.
It took until Saturday afternoon for me to to clue in. He had been wearing the shoe with the lift at school for a week when the pain started.
I am betting that he has been moving for almost 6 yrs with his hips out of place. Now, for the first time, they are in place.
And it hurts.
Hopefully it will stop hurting soon.
