In brief: Little advice

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. They are usually felt on both sides, and appear late in the day or at night, waking the child, with pain varying from mild to very severe.You could use Motrin and TLC tell the chide grow up, it will stop.Thank you.
