I am concerned about your daughter's complaints of pain in her legs and ankles. These pains are unlikely to be due to growing pains. There are important causes of these complaints in children which must be diagnosed by a doctor such as Rheumatic fever or Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis for example as well as other possible conditions. Please take her to be seen by a paediatrician.
