We have been to the doctor so much lately for multiple things that I am wondering if this is something he needs to go and see the doctor for any help would be awesome I don't know what to do!

Sorry no one has responded yet.

I really don't know what to say except call the child's doctor. It could be growing pains or a potassium deficiency or a side effect of a medication.

Take care and I pray you find an answer.
