My elder baby is complaining that she has leg pain. When I try to locate her pain, she did not showing any location of pain.   I noticed that she is telling this when she gets sleep.   Could someone tell what should I take care of the above mensioned problem?

My doc says if the pain forgotten by kids when you divert them " if a kid forget the pain between room to Kichen " it's not a cause for concern

Dear AM. I am not sure what age the pain could start but looks like it is common from early childhood. My daughter is 4 years old. So could be as early as 3-4 years but again all children may not have it :)

Hi everyone..... just would like to double check if anemia in children also can be the cause of leg pain especially at a time when they lie down at night?

Yups.. these are growing pains, Mr daughter if 9 years always has this pain.. usually upper feet almost daily... I consulted many docs and also had her blood tests done to rule out possibilities.. but all was good and most of them agreed that these are growing pains.. the nerves stretch during thus period and that's y the pain... don't worry.. it will go off.. some remedies would help u like giving her sandoz... another method would be massaging the area with good ointment, another would be to prepare a lukewarm salt water bath for the feet, soak them in the water till the water cools off or alternatwe btw warn and cold water... all these methods work for my daughter... try them... safe and harmless... all the best...

Dear Dimple ... Even I faced this problem with my child so much so that he often chose to miss his tennis coaching because of pain in legs. After consulting my brother who is a doctor and my son's coach I came to the same conclusion that Anurima has suggested and everything became fine on it's own. And yes messaging helped my son too :)

Hey Dimple, my daughter had this complaint a few months back. She used to cry out in her sleep. I had googled and asked a few friends. It is quite common among growing children and is also known as 'growing pain'. In other words, its like a growth spurt that your child is growing through. They will suddenly stop and there is no need to be worried. My daughter used to complain of pain around her knee, ankles, calf area- just her lower legs. Is it same for your daughter? I used to gently massage her legs till she used to fall asleep. Hope this helps.
