It is unusual for a girl of your daughter's age to have these complaints. This always seems to occur following exercise. It is possible that your daughter has low magnesium levels. This complaint is not due to growing pains. It would be worthwhile giving your daughter a magnesium supplement daily for at least 1 month. If there is no improvement and she still complains about weakness and pins and needles in her limbs she should be seen by a paediatrician.She may need thyroid tests done and her sodium,potassium, calcium and magnesium levels tested following a careful general examination.
