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.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
