Growing Pains

According to Wiki, “Growing pains are pain symptoms relatively common in children. Typically, they are located in the muscles, rather than the joints, of the leg and less commonly the arm…”

I’m not sure about you but the term used to be nothing more than an adjectives to me, until Sarah had her first growing pain a fortnight ago, literally.

She started by limping in the afternoon and feeling the discomfort on her right knee; the pain intensified and effecting her walking later. Back then, hubby just massaged with some ointment on the knee before sent her to sleep…she was alright the subsequent day. It was just one of those random things, so we thought.

And then the pain strike once again, on last Wednesday.

Although it is gone on the next day too but we decided to hear it from the doctor this time; after checking the doctor has explained the exact same information which I found from internet. We were told if the pain is really unbearable then only some pain killer can come into play.

We are so relieved that this thing is harmless, and it is not an illness, thanks God.

P/S: Growing pain reoccur between 13th to 29th June 2016. Full recovery after one week, without medication.

Hui Li:
Er, good question:-)
Recently Sarah likes to run with high speed and then suddenly sit down with bended knee. Initially I thought it could be the reason of the pain but I wonder why the pain only on right knee since she sat down with two bended knees.
Anyway, thanks for your concern.

Serene, Kathy, Alice, Kitty, Agnes and Cynthia:
Thank you so much for your regards and concerns. Hope that the pain already over and would not come back again.

When my boy complained abt pain on his calves, I was oso vy worried. But his paed said it's something normal, a lot of children experience that. Now I know it's called growing pains. Luckily he doesn't get it so frequent now.
