LEG PAIN IN CHILDREN
by Meena Sriram
My son is 2 yrs.& 10 months old. Since middle of Dec.2011 he has this problem of leg pains. During the day time he is perfectly fine, he plays & jumps around and has a sound sleep in the a'noon without any disturbance but late night mostly after 3 am, he complains of leg pain earlier it used to be in the knee, now a days sometimes its on the thighs but these days its mostly in the feet, below feet or the side of the feet. We went to 3 doctors but all of them are saying that it is growth pain. The second doctor said that he might be deficient in vitamin D so we started giving him vit.D drops but still he has this kind of pain every alternate nights. He starts complaining and then i try to massage the spot with ointment but it doesn't suffice him and after some time he starts crying again and then finally I give him adol (paracetamol) syrup ; 5 ml and then only he is ok and he goes back to sleep. The ortho during the second round said that he has to do some special blood test to check if he has any inflammation in the bones.
We are giving vitamin D, calcium and iron, multi vitamins and cod liver also but he has no relief and he still complains in between with leg pain during night time.
CAN YOU PLS. ADVICE ME WITH ANY REMEDIES FOR THIS PROBLEM.
