Growing Pains? user banned
Nov 12th '12

Last night and the night before DS (3) woke up crying in pain. :( He'll say "bad booboo", ''really hurts", & "it hurts so bad" He says its his leg but it looks fine.
This morning he ran and stopped after a few feet and started crying so bad talking about hurting again :(

Are growing pains THAT painful? What can I do for him other than medicine?

Its only one leg that hurts. Is that odd?

That's how my son got before his growth spurt. I would give him Tylenol and it helped a little bit. I also gave him a warm bath and would rub his legs for him which he like a lot.

I used to get really bad growing pains, so they can be that painful. Have him eat a banana, in case it's muscle cramps.

When was the last time he had his blood count checked? Has he had any other issues lately?
