    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    hi,
    my 7 year old(8 in a couple of weeks) woke up with pain in back of both of his legs. Can't straighten them fully. Walking with a limp.
    I know about growing pains but i don't feel this is what's happening in this case.

    If you find this one out - let me know! My children both (9 yrs apart) have had the back of their knees loc-up on them and cant straighten their legs at times, and then were sore for awhile. I always wondered what and why that happened. My growing pains growing up were so bad - I remember crawling downstairs to my moms room and crying they hurt soo bad! Funny thing is- I'm the shortest out of 7 kids! 5'1"
