If the pain goes down your arm, nerve impingement in the neck (disc herniation for instance) is a likely bet. Also muscular strain and fibromyalgia can cause this. ...Read more

My 29 month old daughter has been complaining of back pain, leg and arm pain she has an undiagnosed bleeding/blood disorder could the pain be related?

My 29 month old daughter has been complaining of back pain, leg and arm pain she has an undiagnosed bleeding/blood disorder could the pain be related?

Depends on which: bleeding disorder she has. I assume a pediatric hematologist is evaluating her. Whether related to her blood disorder or not, she's in pain & needs to see her pediatrician. Kids that age don't complain about aches & pains for no reason. Take her temperature when she complains. 100.4 degrees F or above is a fever. Note any joint swelling, tenderness, heat, limp,decreased appetite or activity level. ...Read more
