Sore legs in children

I know when I was young I had some pain in my legs pretty frequently. My mom and doctor would both tell me it was growing pains, and honestly it probably was since it went away on it's own without too much excitement. I think growing pains is pretty common in children, but if it is chronic or unbearable pain I would check with your pediatrician.

    That's what we were always told too. My mil likes to tell the story about how my husband would complain so about being in pain. She took him to the doctor at some point and the doctor said to her, "You'd be in pain too if you grew 6 inches in a year (I think)."
