Psychiatrist 's  Response

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

From your description possible causes of your son suffering in order of preference:
-Decrease blood supply of toes
-Anxiety and depressive illness causing or increasing pain complaints
-Combination of above reasons

Considering multiple possible problems he need evaluation by neurologist and psychiatrist.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
