Growing pains is a common term discussed by parents. Growing pains are described as achy muscle pain that affect some preschoolers and primary school children. Despite the name “growing pains,” there is no firm evidence that growing pains are linked to growth spurts.
Firstly it’s very important to rule out any more insidious causes of your child’s pain. See your GP if your child presents with the following: severe pain in only one leg, if pain affects them during the day, if the pain makes them limp, if they have joint swelling and redness, if they feel unwell or have a fever.
