    Default 3yo DD complaining of sore legs

    I am getting concerned because my 3yo DD often complains, to the point of tears, of sore legs and tonight of sore feet. I have put it down to growing pains in the past but just feel like there might be something more serious. Has anyone else's little one complained of sore legs/feet and what was the cause? All advice appreciated.

    With DS it has always been growing pains, and he's cried many a time over it. He likes it if I massage the sore parts with oil, seems to fix it.

    Try a warm heat pack and nerofen. Thats what physio recommended for my almost 6 year old who gets leg pain often.

    My dd had undiagnosed hip dysplasia for the first 3 years of her life and was operated on, so her pain stems from that.

    Thank you so much for your reassurances. It is so upsetting to see a little one in pain, and especially when there is nothing to "see". You have set my mind at ease!

    My chiropractor treats for growing pains seems to work really well for my boys.

    My daughter , 4yrs, wakes during the night complaining her legs hurt ame her feet are burning. We have had her checked by Drs and they just say she is fine. The last couple of weeks she has complained her feet feel hot and burny during the night and then this week her shoes dont fit as she has grown a size so Im guessing growing pains also.
