my son is 5. 1month old and he also has the same problem for last 3 yrs. Doctor atfirst said as he always runs so its pain but when it started continuing dr did vit-d defficiency test. it came positive. Now near about 6months or in a year he have to take vit d medicine when pain pain continue long period. Its became now normal. Try to make him play outside so that he get sunray regularly. There is no other solution. sunray is the best medicine or vitamin d medicine. consult ur dr & do the blood test once to confirm. ointment like voline, move or homemade hot garlic mustard oil massage may help.
