In brief: Growing pains
This could be growing pains.
Growing pains are inflammatory areas on the end of bones (apophosytis) commonly in the knee area, heel area or even various other regions in the body. These occur from stress to these areas while growing. Rest, ice, and nsaids such as Motrin can help. Also important is stretching exercises around the joints to relieve stress to the apophyses.

In brief: Get checked
There are many causes but some are dangerous.
If its worse or not better over a week, get seen to make sure no fracture or childhood cancer.
