My daughter was 8 when she first fractured her right leg just below the knee. No big deal, right? Sure, if we knew how it happened. One day it started to hurt. The pain gradually got worse. But it healed.

Now she's 10 and the pain is back. I've taken her in to 3 different orthopedists who've x-rayed it, all say no break. I have been told: growing pains, shin splints, even weather changes are the cause!!!

The pain is getting worse, but no one will listen!

What do I do now? Who do I go to that will take this seriously and investigate and not treat us like cattle? Frustrating!!!!!

Please help if you can!
