Customer Question

Good day! I would jus like to ask if it is normal that my 4 year old has knee pains at times. It happens more or less once every 2 months. And usually early morning like around 2am or so.

Hello,

This is normal and can be termed growing pains. Nothing to worry if the pain is transitory and there is no swelling associated.

Please however try giving vitamin C for few months daily and see. Mild deficiency may be the cause.
