Our expert says:
This sounds like growing pains. During growth spurts muscles and connective tissue can struggle to keep up with the boney growth of the lower leg.
I would recommend that your child sees an osteopath. For more information on osteopathy visit www.osteogoodhealth.com
Failing that I would recommend soaking the lower leg in warm water just before bedtime or use a hot water bottle at bed time.
