How can I tell if my 4 1/2 year old is having growing pains? He's complained of right knee/leg pain a few times a week, mostly at night for a month.

In brief: Get it checked

"growing pains" unlikely at that age. See your pediatrician.

In brief: GROWING PAINS

Before you conclude its only growing pains, have him checked for other problems, lab , xrays and thorough physical exam by your doctor.
