    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.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    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.
