Growing pains:Mysterious pains in growing children, usually in the legs. These pains are similar to what the weekend gardener suffers from on Monday-an overuse type of problem. If in playing, children exceed their regular threshold, they will be sore, just like an adult. Growing pains are typically somewhat diffuse (vs. focal) and are not associated with physical changes of the area (such as swelling, redness, etc.).
The pains are usually easily relieved by massage, Tylenol (acetaminophen), or rest. If the pains persist past a week or there are physical changes, the child should be seen by a physician.
Does your child sometimes wake up crying in the middle of the night complaining of throbbing leg pain? It could be growing pains.
