My daughter is having legs pain for the past one year. We have consulted many doctors. Is this because of hormonal changes ( she is 9 years only)? Some say growing pains. Do growing pains actually exist and for this long? Can more calcium intake be the reason? We are very worried

Growing pains usually cause an aching or throbbing feeling in the legs. This pain often occurs in the front of the thighs, the calves or behind the knees. Usually both legs hurt. Some children may also experience abdominal pain or headaches during episodes of growing pains. From growing pains you don't need to visit a doctor, they usually go away. But sometimes, growing pains can be misdiagnosed with some other condition. If your baby is experiencing persistent pain then it may not be a growing pain. I would suggest change the doctor and visit another pediatrician for a visit. Hope this helps Take Care
