    HI and welcome,

    I'm one of the community champions here on scope and i'm here to help and advise others.

    I'm afraid we are not medical professionals here on scope and we won't be able to give you any medical advice regarding this. I'd advise you to make an appointment with his GP to discuss your concerns.

    Hi @Sharon2875 - Welcome to the community. My son had bilateral talipes (feet turned in) too. I'm sorry your son has recently been getting headaches; as Poppy advises it's best to discuss these with his GP. Do let us know how you get on.

    Sorry to hear that @Sharon2875, I hear they can be very painful! I really hope neurology are able to help.
