In brief: Flat feet?

Growing pains are usually associated with flat feet and can linger with age.
Have your feet evaluated. A good pair of orthotics may take care if all your aches and pains.

In brief: Knee pain

Any pain in knee or leg that has lasted 10-15 years really needs an evaluation.
This is not a common situation. Causes that might explain a problem so persistent are developmental abnormalities of the bones--cysts, benign tumors, abnormal growth of cartilage, excessive angulation of bones, etc.
