I have a 6 year old with Asthma that is having horrible leg pains he takes singular 4mg 1x daily and then uses an rescue inhaler as needed. 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.

I agree with Sonya. Unfortunately, there can be so many possible reasons for leg pain, a visit or call to the pediatrician may be the most helpful.
