My 7 year old son complains of his whole right leg hurting only at night I don't know what's wrong.
Growing pains: Without knowing more details, I would say this is most likely "growing pains." We don't understand what really causes growing pains, but we do know that they are temporary and will eventually go away. Meanwhile, it is best to treat it with moist heat (those rice-filled bags are the best) and ibuprofen if needed (always give with food). Massage and gentle muscle stretching can also be helpful. ...Read more

I have throbbing leg pain in my right leg and it has been going on for weeks. It causes bad anxiety. It moves as the day goes on and gets worse night?
Anxiety talking: There is what we used to call "neurotic anxiety" - fears about things one need not worry about and reality anxiety - fears about things that can be wrong or really hurt us. Worrying about new or repeating pain is real worry - it is a message speaking loud and clear: "this needs to be properly medically assessed". Listen to the message, it is important, and unsafe to ignore. ...Read more

Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more
