Q.

Leg Pains

My 7 year old daughter complains and has been complaining for the past 2 - 3 years of pains in her legs. They don't last long and are not permanent? Should i just put it down to growing pains or could it be more serious?

I can not advise without a taking careful history and examination. If the problems do interfere with your child's quality of life it does require formal evaluation.
