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.

Funny thing is- I'm the shortest out of 7 kids! 5'1"
