I have been taking my daughter to different doctors for many years (since she was about four), and they all told me she basically had growing pains. I am afraid. She does grow very fast (she is about 5'6" and has been wearing ladies' shoes for a couple of years), but I am concerned she may suffer long-term side-effects and pain because the problem was mis-diagnosed. She has suffered a similar problem with her knee (I'm not sure of the name), but she has a large lump on the bottom of her knee which causes severe pain with excess sport (something to do with the muscle being stronger than the bone).
Any information you could provide me with would be greatfully received. Thankyou for your website.
