My 4.5 yr old daughter has been complaining of pain in her thighs or feet. I try to massage around the areas of pain but it doesn't alleviate the pain?

Day or night?: If the pains are occurring mainly during the night, it is most likely muscular pain related to the muscles not getting stretched out during the night and causing cramping/pain. Doing stretching exercises routinely before bed often diminishes these symptoms. If the pain is during the day, this is more unusual and warrants evaluation by your child's doc. Make sure vitamin and water intake is good. ...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
