My daughter complains of leg pain

Wow! I didn't realize that there are qualified pediatricians on this forum! That makes it even better. Thanks a lot doctors for helping the parents.

My 7 year old complains a lot about her legs hurting. She even wakes up sometimes in the middle of the night because of that. Is this normal for a 7 year old kid to have so much leg pain or should I get her checked?

Oil massage helps in reducing the pain. Are there other things I could do to make her feel better? more

Ya exertion / fatigue could be one reason . Vit d def. can manifest with limb pain also more  
My son complains about his feet and hands aching too. Could this be a symptom of Vit D deficiency? more  
Thank you, Dr. Chhonker. Could this be because she is running around in school during the day?

Anyway, it's good to know that it is not normal in your opinion. I will bring it up during her regular check up that's coming up. If the frequency of the complaint increases, I will get her checked. Thank you for the advice. more  
No it's not normal in children there must be reason for leg pain and must go to pediatrician for check up. Using cloths to tie leg can be done but in calculated way, if you are confident then there is no harm. more  
Alka, thanks a lot for the tip. Would love to hear what the doctors have to say about it. I will try it out next time she experiences the leg pain anyway. more
